A vote of confidence...

Thank you Laurie of ' When The Bough Breaks' for nominating me for the Liebster Award.  This is the second I've received in a year, so I must be doing something right.  It's nice to know that you wonderful people in Blogland read and enjoy my blog.

As for Laurie... you just have to check out her gorgeous birds.

Who knows where The Liebster Blog Award originated? It is meant to showcase those who have fewer than 200 followers. (Liebster means "favourite" or "dearest" in German.) This is done in the spirit of pay-it-forward. In accepting this award, the recipient agrees to:

• Thank the person that gave them the award and link back to their blog
• Copy and paste the award to their blog
• Reveal the 5 blogs they have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog

For those I am about to award, I should also point out there is no obligation to continue this award. If this is not your cup of tea, don’t worry.
The value behind this award is for us to get to know other bloggers who might not be well known, yet have a lot to share. Each of us has our own following, for various different reasons. Those who read our blogs might benefit from being introduced to other sorts of art practice. It is all part of the blogging concept of sharing knowledge.

Sooooo, that said, here are five worthy recipients:

1.  David at David Weir Art
     His work is superb!!! Everyone should follow this blog

     Beautiful encaustic works.

3.  Terrie at Creative Explorer
     Because she is willing to try new things, and excels at them.

4.  Granny Annie at The Whimsey Asylum
     How I love what she does with digital art.

5.  Steve Specht at Collagist.
     A great inspiration to me.

Hope you enjoy visiting these talented people as much as I do.  Isn't blogging fun!
