I was really happy that so many fellow artists and friends stopped by to say "hi". Their support sparks my enthusiasm and inspiration.
Here's a photo of an artist friend, Randy Saffle who stopped by to say to "Hi" me and Barbara Woods, my painting buddy who also exhibited.

The other day I received the Lemonade Award from Saundra Galloway. It sounds like a perfect award as I was making lemonades out of lemons, scaping and re-painting.
A Lemonade Award is given to bloggers that show a positive attitude and gratitude. It also exemplifies people who have a willingness to share their ideas, support and online friendship.
Here are the rules for the award:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 7 blogs that show great Gratitude and/or Attitude.
3. Be sure to list and link your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.
The following 7 blogs exemplify to me what this award is for. I invite you to check each one of these wonderful artist blogs and see for yourself why I believe they "fit" this award so well...
It's Monday - I hope everyone has a wonderful day and a wonderful week ahead!

Well I am supposed to give the passionate award to other artists I think are very passionate about art.
If you will look to the right you will see the artists whose links are listed, I think are passionate about ART. If you are reading this blog, I feel you must be passionate about ART. If you've left me a comment in the past - I know you're passionate.
Thank you to all of you who've visited my blog!!

I met Angela Elledge at Artscape at the Dallas Arboretum this past week. What a thrill and surprise that she gave me the Passion for Painting award - the rules are that I'm to write about 7 things I'm passionate about.
I'm passionate about so many thing so it's hard to say this or that specific things so here's a few in no particular order:
1) I'm passionate about painting
2) My pointer sisters
3) My man
4) My perfume...I tend to spritz too much...
5) My "free" time when I'm alone and have not a thing to do...
6) My friends - where would we be without friends, acquaintances, people we love and love us?
7) Art in general - look talking about art with others, looking at it, dreaming about it.

I only have a minute to write today - a friend from my high school is coming for a week's visit and I've got to go to the airport to pick her up. On Saturday I'll be inviting some of my high school alumni living in the DFW area to come to my house and meet her and have a little mini-Zama High School reunion. This is so incredible that we still keep in touch and that I've found a few of my alums in the area. Zama High School is a Department of Defense school at Camp Zama, Japan....yessssss, waaaaay over there!! I have a couple of artist friends who visit and link with my blog who also went to my high school, Sheila Tajima and Hellenne Vermillion. The world is certainly a small place!
Go - Trojans!
