Upper Bull Creek, 6 x 8
Stressful as these late May days are with kids in school and the myriad of responsibilities flooding into daily life, today was a great day. First, I was able to go out again and paint at Bull Creek here in Austin with my painting friends (makes any day fantastic), then I delivered several paintings I had sold to a dear friend, and of course the American Idol finale is tonight. Another very good friend is momentarily at my doorstep for a glass of wine, and last, I opened my blog to find Ann Rogers had awarded me a Kreative Blogger award today. Thank you, Ann.
One of the enormous benefits of being any kind of artist these days is the beautiful online community of peers and supporters that you get to be a part of when you blog. Thank you to all of you who faithfully comment....I read every one and though I'm not always able to comment back, know I deeply appreciate every one--they are all boosters in my day. As for the award, it entails linking back to the one who gave it, and listing seven things you love, and forwarding it on to seven bloggers you enjoy. I've already exceeded my "short-and-to-the-point" personal rule, so here they are quickly: my husband, my daughters, my deep friendships, painting outside on a beautiful Austin day, my faith, my fabulous mom and siblings, and a great glass of red wine. Some of my favorite artists to follow:
May you all have a great day!
