Lucky Me!

My good news...
I have been awarded with Liebster Blog Award by Helen Moreda This award is given to bloggers who inspire you and have less than 200 followers. The Liebster Award takes it’s name from the German word meaning Beloved, Dearest or Favorite.

I am thrilled and honored to receive it. Bless you Helen and many thanks

As part of the tradition it is passed along to 5 bloggers that have
motivated and inspired.
To accept the award you must:

1. Link back to the person who gave it to you and thank them

2. Post the award to your blog

3. Give the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers
that you appreciate and value.

4. Leave a comment on the 5 blogs to let them know that they have been offered this award.

Now for the hard task of picking my five choices..

Always supportive of other artists plus she freely shares her painting knowledge in a wonderful journey of exploration and success.

Hilda Muxo
Shares her stories with beautiful pastels full of emotion. She is another painter who finds time to support her fellow artists.

Lynne Windsor
A New Mexico painter and print maker, currently in England learning different printmaking skills. Awesome work.

Haidee-jo Summers
Interesting and personal art viewpoints from a fun and talented artist who lives between England and an island in France                               
Nora MacPhail
A wonderful supportive and sharing artist who works brilliantly with line as well as watercolor. Amazing !

Congratulations to the five of you and I thank you for motivating and inspiring me.

There are so many more who bring me great pleasure and inspiration. It is a shame there can only be five getting the award but would like to mention two others.

Jane  From Italy and works in watercolor. She has constantly encouraged me ( she has over 500 followers!!!)
