Today has turned out to be a quiet yet brilliant day!
Gayle Mason (Fur in the Paint) has awarded Black on Grey on White with the Arte y Pico award. I am very flattered and performing quite an impressive happy dance on this side of the water (last weeks waltzing can't in anyway compete!)
Gayle is a very talented and accomplished animal artist who produces some exquisite work in not only pencil and pastel but also acrylics. Intrigued (you should be!) you can see her work on both her blog Fur in the Paint and her website.
The Origin of The Arte y Pico Award:
The designer of the award explains it in the following way: "The Arte y Pico Award has arisen from the daily visits that I make to many blogs which nourish and enrich me with creativity. In them, I see dedication, creativity, care, comradeship, but mainly, ART, much art. I want to share this prize with all those bloggers that entertain and enrich me day to day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few.”
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.
2. Each award should have the name of the author with a link to their blog.
3. Award winners have to post the award with the name and link to the blog of the person who gave them the award.
4. Show these rules and the paragraph (above) explaining the awards origination.
I would like to pass on this award to the following blogs I avidly await posts from and enjoy reading (sadly the rules state 5 ...!)
Kim Santini -Painting a Dog a Day-
Juliette Harrison -Le Cheval the Horse-
Erin Vey -Bark-
Neil Hollingsworth -Paintings in Oil-
Linda Shantz -Linda Shantz Equine and Animal Art-
Once again, Gayle many heartfelt thank-yous.
