What Goes Around Comes Around

I was just awarded the Passion for Painting award from Deb Ward! ha ha I had this awarded to me a few days or weeks ago so I won't pass this one on (I think if you get a second one, you can keep it for yourself :) Do check out Deb's blog and see what she creates. She is also a membership co-chair for our watercolor society and is in charge of our spring show at Evergreen this month!! Plus she has her very own cows on her property - and they all pose for her, of course.


Thanks, Deb, for thinking of me when you got this award.




So instead of me telling you 7 more things that make me passionate, I'm going to ask you:

What makes you passionate about painting?
Whose paintings always make your spirit rise inside you and say,
"That is too good!" or
"How did he/she do that?" or
"I wish I'd thought of that!"


Color and design always get me. Strong, bright, bold, unexpected color in the midst of a good, strong design.

Well, Rhonda, you almost got a third one. I was awarded one of these by my sister Joan, and when I started my list of 7 inspiring artists, you were one of my choices, but looking at your blog I could see that you had already been nominated. So double congratulations - or is that triple? :-)
