Sunshine Award

I was recently given the Sunshine Award by three wonderful artists:  Gwen Bell, Pat Burns, and Faith Te.

The rules for this award are:

1.  Put the logo on your blog or within your post
2.  Pass the award on to 12 bloggers
3.  Link the nominees within your post
4.  Let the nominees know they have received this award
5.  Link to the person from whom you received this award

I'm passing the award off to these artists, whose work I admire:

Amanda Carder - I always enjoy her blog updates, her work is fabulous!

Aimee Dingman - An acrylic artist (love those Tootsie Pops!)

Todd Ford - I love looking at his unique still life paintings.  Amazing talent!

Edward Gordon - An extremely prolific artist.  I look forward to reading his blog every day.  I like everything he does, but I particularly enjoy his figurative work.

Marti Green - So talented with watercolor, and now venturing into acrylic.

Vicky Knowles - Vicky's work is just plain fun.

Pat Meras - Soft pastel paintings that will knock your socks off!

Sophie Ploeg - Portrait and figurative work in oil.  Check out my personal favorite "Checks and Sand."  Love it!

Pierre Raby - I just love everything he does.  I could look at his work for hours.  He has two blogs, so make sure to visit both.

Alvin Richard - I love still life paintings that look uncontrived, and Alvin is a master at it.

Colette Thierault - Excellent animal artist.

This last blog is all about soft pastel artists, a review of their web sites.  I enjoy scrolling through it and looking at all the great pastel art.  Check out Artists in Pastel.

Special thanks to Gwen, Pat, and Faith for thinking of me!

Thank you so very much for the Sunshine award, I cannot help but wonder whose looking and what they think. What a wonderful surprise to find a fellow artist feels it is worthy of an award. What an Honor!
