Anita Davies kindly gifted me this award. In return, I am to list to 5 blogs I love to visit.
First, I wanted to give special mention and thanks to the artists who inspire me greatly and to whom I visit regularly. Their names-familiar to most of us-are listed on my sidebar. I LOVE you Andrea, Anita, Danny, Grace, Desiree, and Jane! A visit to their sites is ALWAYS a special treat.
Second, now..for the awards...TA DAA!!! Since I am what you would term a "newbie" in the blogging area, I have used a little beginner's artistic license here with this award and would like to use it to honor 3 blogs that are brand NEW to me this week that I am loving to visit:
"Envelope Please" (...after all...it is Oscar night... :)
Jennifer Lawson- Jennifer's blog is fresh and filled with delightfully delicate, refined drawings. I really enjoy her attention to detail and her use of colored pencil. Plus, I am still giggling to myself about her EDM post featuring "popcorn" (as well as its follow-up posting) ;) Check them out for yourself-they are brilliant!
Draw Daily- I found "Pedalpower's" blog this week through EDM links. I so enjoy the midwest nostalgic flavor of her architectural art (I just love that route 66 gas station) and some of her newer vintage drawings. Also, "Pedalpower" is fortunate to be in a work environment dear to her heart where she can both work and enjoy her love of art at the same time...what a great combo that makes!
Desiree-Desiree's blog "The Clothes Line and other Laundry Lists" makes me want to literally bathe in my watercolor paints! Her use of color in her fruit and veggie series is so juicy and scrumptious and rich. M.m.m.m.m! I love to look at and learn about beautiful things. Desiree's website provides one with artistic beauty and a feast for the eyes. Plain and simple...Desiree inspires me! She is my newest addition to my sidebar inspiration list. Check her out!
The participation rules are simple:
1. If you get tagged (and want to play along) write a post with links to blogs that you love, too.
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme, created by Emilia.
