I am tickled to have received the Kreativ Blogger award from Karen Hargett; a wonderful, inspirational pastel (among other things) artist and new blogger friend! You have to check out Karen's pastels. The depth she achieves is wonderful. I'm particularly partial to her recent sunflower and cone flowers. When you have a over to
Karen Hargett's Fine Art Journal! I especially love her use of scripture to add to our inspiration!

I will be pondering in the coming days and trying to choose seven artists to pass this award on to. It may take me a bit, but I am happy to do it.

Until then, to follow the rules I list seven things about myself. I understand this rule. We share more about us, so the depth in our personalities will enhance what you see of our work. I like here goes

1. EVERYTHING I do I consider God first, and what He would expect of me.
2. I adore my husband.
3. My family is very important to me.
4. I've wanted to be an artist ever since I can remember. I used to enter those magazine contests and they would send responses like "Perhaps you should choose another profession".
5. I don't give up easily on anything if it is worthwhile...thus I didn't listen to those magazine schools.
6. String puppets terrify me!
7. I was stalked by a mountain lion last neighbor had to shoot it to keep it from getting in my house!

So...some the same, some new items for you...tee hee...

Today is all about perspective drawing of the football painting for Damon. I should have included in my list...I am not a big fan of linear perspective! Mainly because I find it hard to sit still long enough to do it...but I will soldier on and accomplish my daily goal. Happy Painting!

Congratulations on your award! And your first "thing about you" brought tears to my eyes - if we all did this what a world it would be!!! Good for you, having this as your guiding light as you go through life :)

Thanks RH! I am a big proponent of everyone living right that our world would be a better place! I appreciate you stopping by!

Exactly what RH said; we should all do what you do. It is so easy to not think...Anyway, I had to laugh at your art school contest entries. Every single time I've done those, I get contacted by the school and they want me to sign up. Their tuition is over $12k, believe it or not. Anyway...kudos to you on your award. I do so love your blog! I am considering enrolling in a correspondence course for art though. It can only help. Sure can't hurt! LOLOL

Autumn Leaves...The way I see it knowledge is a great start! But, as I tell my students the BEST thing after knowing the "rules" in art is PRACTICE!! That is a major reason I started this blog...sort of gives me a reason to practice art every day! For years my "school" was in books. I ordered every North Light book I could and just jumped right in! I bet you are better than you think!! So glad you stop by to visit!

This painting is quite a challenge and you have nailed it. Well done. I agree about learning from books, and of course practice.... Just wish I had more time...... Oh well. Saundra thankyou for following my blog. I've enjoyed reading yours too.

Congrads, sis!
More than deserved!

And what an example you are to so many on your "seven things about myself" list - number one reflects Matthew 6:33 so well.
Not surprising, knowing you.

Congrads again!

Carolann...We shall see...I spent the day getting my linear perspective...AAARRRGGGHHH!! Thanks for stopping by!

My Brother Dear! You are so good to me! All we can do is try, RIGHT!! God is Great!
