11" X 15" mixed media on cardboard for Illustration Friday's Legendary challenge
Well, as you can see, I've discovered something else I like. Ava says I like everything. What could be wrong with that, I ask you? Except that I do get a little attention deficit when I have a lot of things going on, like I do now. I've got three big unfinished paintings in my studio, and while they sat there, I painted this abstract because I'm excited about this new form. Truthfully, I didn't like one of the big unfinshed canvases, but now I think I can go back and apply some of the same techniques I used here and be happy with it. Learning something new is always a good thing!
Earlier this week I received this honor from two Phenomenal Women: Cathy and Terri, two friends whose support and friendship inspire me daily to have the courage to continue pursue my dream and to share the chronicles of my journey with you. Here's what these two artists said about blogs that receive this award: "This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award." I am humbled and honored to be considered as such. I would like, in turn, to recognize 8 other artists whose blogs exemplify the qualities of generosity, inspiration, and selflessness:
Artiphy the Heart
What's Up Roc
Bluebirds Living In The Meadow
It Must Be Mice
Please visit their blogs and leave them a comment. You will be glad you did.
Because of all of you, I have finally been able to do what I dreamt of for so many years. Thank you with all my heart.
