"The 'Arte y Pico' award was created and to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and their talents, whether it be writing, artwork in all media. When you receive this award it is considered a 'special honor'. Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to at least 5 others."
I feel very honored to receive this award and am so thrilled to be able to pass it on to the following blogs that inspire me with their creative energy and talents:
Joanie at Joanie's Balonie because her digital scrapbook layouts are truly ART! She is a Photoshop genius (in my humble opinion). You've GOT to check out her work. I want to someday accomplish what she does in Photoshop.
Catherine Holman at Pigment of Your Imagination just because work makes me "drool" creatively and everytime I visit her blog I want to get into my studio, push up my sleeves, and paint something!
Gretel at Middle of Nowhere because her creative journey has inspired me in so many ways I can't even recount them here. Her work is magical and whimsical, and if you haven't taken the time to visit her blog, you must. I will warn you... you'll fall in love with her work and want it for yourself.
Thea Burger at Shades of Life for her amazing paintings that have hints of Mary Cassatt in them with their impressionistic interpretation of beautiful objects. Then with the addition of great framing, her art is simply gorgeous.
Helen Read at Brushstrokes Etc. because her paintings always make me think beyond my own current style and inspire me to explore. Her current work on sunflowers is just phenomenal! She is such a prolific creator that it astounds me.
