My Valentine to Six More Bloggers

Well, I named and sent the "I x-o your art blog" award to Suzanne but didn't send another and I have 6 more to send out. What better day than Valentine's Day to do that.

I am sending the little award to:

Vicki of Garden of Weeden - and no, I'm not sending this so I'll win her giveaway this month (but it couldn't hurt, right? ha ha)

Angela, whose paintings are so light and airy and lovely.

Joan, who is living in one of my favorite places and is creating wonderful traditional and not-so-traditional but exception work in a variety of mediums.

Brent, who is a new favorite who paints scenes I'd love to paint of places I love.

Myrna, who is always coming up with something new and exciting. Besides that, she rocks!

Ok, one more - it's very hard to choose. I know some people don't do the award thing - don't want one and don't want to pass one on. I can understand that. It does take time and effort to choose and notify and get all the ducks in a row (and no, these artists I've chosen are NOT ducks - they are all beautiful watercolor swans or proud peacocks :)

Cathy G, of A Sketch in Time, a new favorite blog of mine. Her sketching and painting is wonderful and I love that she lives and works in South Africa. I picture her in the midst of all those warm colors, just soaking it up.

That's it. I hope I haven't duplicated anyone who has already received one. And if you don't want to participate, that's okay, too. Just wanted you to know that I xo your art blog!

All you have to do to pass on the award is 1) list 7 things you love and 2) send it on to 7 blogs you love.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you Rhonda. I checked out the other award winners and must say I am in very good company. I will participate and post on Monday.

Thanks for your lovely award. Id did enjoy reading how you 'saw' me - ie traditionalist yet not!! Trouble is I do all sorts depending on what or who or where they are for. !!! I'll get down to recording my favourite things and listing other bloggers soon as I can.

Thanks so much Rhonda, and for your very nice 'review'! I'll get to work on my seven loves and have a think about who to pass it on to. I'm happy to be in the company of some new bloggers that I haven't met before, as well as some familiar names.

Vicki and Joan, you are both very welcome. If you don't have the time, you don't have to participate but I still wanted to send them :)

Angela said...

Thank you so much Rhonda! I feel very honored and will definitely participate - as soon as I figure out how to copy the award and narrow my list of loves down to 7!

You so very welcome, Cathy G. and Angela :) Both of you paint in a very clean style with lovely lines. I often wish I could view work up close and in person but I doubt I'll ever travel to South Africa, Cathy, so your blog will have to do for now :)Angela may be closer - but not in the wintertime!
