I received this lovely award from portrait artist Kim Barker who blogs on Laketrees. She also mains the Top Artist’s Directory. Check out the directory. You might like to list your art blog there.
Here’s what Kim says about this award:
CreativityCreativity has been attributed variously to divine intervention, cognitive processes, the social environment, personality traits, and chance (“accident”, “serendipity”). It has been associated with genius, mental illness and humour. Some say it is a trait we are born with; others say it can be taught with the application of simple techniques. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although popularly associated with art and literature, it is also an essential part of innovation and invention and is important in professions such as business, economics, architecture, industrial design, science and engineering.
Many of my blogger Artist friends are really creative people so I have decided to recognise their creativity (as defined above) by designing this award to give to the following Creative Bloggers:
I can’t believe that August is almost over! I can’t really barely remember it beginning. Oh my.
I want to special thank you to Emila Yusof of Emila’s Illustrated Blog for giving me two blog awards. It was very nice of her to think of me.
First, there is the Kreativ Blogger Award. This is much appreciated because I’ve been feeling a little out of sorts about my blog lately. It’s nice when a little validation comes to you at just the right time!
I’m going to pass this award along to the following folks because I love to read their blogs. I may not always leave you comments, but I learn so much from their posts and am inspired by their work.
I tried drawing while I was in line getting my driver’s license renewed. This guy was really fidgety so he grabbed my attention. He looks a lot more patient in the drawing. The whole time I was drawing these guys in the back were laughing and talking. I got so paranoid. I knew they couldn’t be laughing at me, but it really bugged me. I kept drawing though. I knew I was being silly. But there is an uncomfortably exposed feeling to drawing in public. I want to have a good drawing on hand to prove that I really can draw. 😀
Kris Cahill at Art and Clairvoyance gave me this award. Isn’t it pretty? This pleases me so much. Getting two awards in one month feels pretty good. Blogging is awesome.
I will pass this along on my next post. I was tagged by Kim at Laketrees for two memes. Thanks for thinking of me Kim! So I will probably put a long post together Sunday or Monday to finish all of my homework.
This is my entry for Everyday Matters challenge 16. It’s my Leatherman tool and it’s got needlenose pliers, a straight knife, scissors, three screwdrivers, a phillips screwdriver, a bottle opener and a corkscrew. When it’s folded up it’s around 3 inches (8cm) but it weighs a ton. I think my husband and I got this as a stocking stuffer or a Christmas gift. I have personally never used it for anything practical, but it is fun to play with.
When you send out the love, the love comes back to you. It’s great to get this again. Thanks to Cedar Raven for giving me this award. I love her blog so much. She’s doing some very cool things with watercolor and acrylic ink. She’s just posted a list of resources for artists using acrylic inks, so check her out.
Well, I’m off. I have to find out what this week’s challenge is. Thanks for stopping by!
