I have received this award from the wonderful artist Cathy Gatland. I started following Cathy's blog A Sketch in Time and admired her expressive sketches and watercolors. It is an honor and a responsibility for which I was not prepared. I really appreciate Cathy for her support and encouragement with this new art blog effort. Thanks again Cathy.

It took a little while to figure out not only what I had to do, but how to do it.
Here are the rules of the PASSION FOR PAINTING AWARD:- List 7 things you love.- Put a link to the one who awarded the award to you.- Pass on the award to 7 others.- Notify them of the award.

I Love:
My family and friends (that includes my BFF)
My furry family (Ivy, Sam, Sammy, Samantha and Missy).
Art including pigments, wonderful graphite pencils, paper (I love paper) and all art related stuff.
On location painting, anywhere.
Painting buddies.
My garden and everything that comes from it.
Last but not least, I love my 1920's house, the glass door knobs, hardwood floors, French windows, upstairs hideaway and my vine covered studio with French doors opening to year around fragrant blossoms.

Ooh, Pat, I hadn't checked back here for a while so missed this - sorry if I startled you with the award, but really think you deserve one, and am glad if a few more people found your beautiful work. (Your house sounds just wonderful!)
