One of the best watercolourists whose work I follow slavishly, has deemed me good enough to receive this award. Mineke Reinders is an incredible artist and I am honoured that she included me in her award list. The award was designed by Kim Ratigan who is an extremely talented animal and wildlife artist. Visit her blog for a look-see.
Now, I need to pass this award on.

Just because you love to create fabulous works of art -

Marian Fortunati - who always makes me laugh
Carol Hadfield - because I know how much she loves to paint
Di McNaughton - who loves life and art and is so generous with herself
Sanjeev Joshi - whose watercolours I love and because he also loves cricket
Jean Lursson - a fabulous watercolourist with links to SA
Sheila Tajima - who gets so many awards I thought I'd just slip this one in
Cathy Gatland - simply because you need to check out her blog

There are so many people out there who I'd like to pass this on to, just because your blogs are so wonderful to read and are also so inspirational. All you really need to do is go to my blog list of friends to know who I think deserve this award.

To those I've linked to, in turn you can link to the person who gave you the award, pass it on to 7 other bloggers whose work inspires you, and list 7 things you love. Or not.

The 7 things I love? Oh ok.

1. The changing of the seasons

2. All animals including cats, rats and bats, but most especially, dogs and horses!

3. Watching a good rugby game especially when our side wins!

4. Staying in the countryside.

5. Reading a well written book - current favourite is The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith - check it out.

6. Quiet me time.

Ok, that's only 6, but I guess the 7th one would definitely be sitting in my little back room, painting!

Hi Carol - you were on my list - I think these are a bit unfair in that I totally believe that everyone deserves this particular award.

Hello Ajay - yes, you were on there too! And absolutely EVERYONE is so deserving.

To you both, thank you for your kind words.

Thank you Arthur!

Cathy Gatland said...

Oh! a surprise! Thanks Liz for including me and congratulations to you - well-deserved as has been said - it's always a joy to see the paintings you're busy with and read how and why you've made them.

Art with Liz said...

You more than deserve an award Cathy, even if it's just for bravery in painting the cricket scenes at the Bull Ring! I never did a thing at Newlands ...

Marian Fortunati said...

Liz!!! I am absolutely HONORED!!.... Not just because you thought of me.... but because you said I made you laugh...
I can't think of anything that makes me feel better... (Hopefully it's the words and not the paintings that make you laugh... LOL)
Thank you Liz!!!

Hi Sanjeev, no pressure. If you want to pass it on, by all means do so. But if not, also ok. It's yours to do with what you want.

Art with Liz said...

Ooops forgot Sanjeev - India are doing fantastically, but can you really call it the IPL if it's held anywhere else? We don't pull the crowds here as you do in India. What about our win yesterday?

Art with Liz said...

Hi Marian, your artwork makes me drool. I always love your comments and I love reading your blog. Thank YOU.
