Art y Pico

The bloggers are a generous lot, passing out compliments and awards to their bloggie friends. I don't know what else to say after getting the Art y Pico Award from both Kelley MacDonald and Jeffrey Boron, two of my fellow artist bloggers. Thank you! :::::::taking a bow:::::::::: This means I get to pass it on to five other bloggers and believe me, there is no shortage of terrific painters and artists out here in the blogosphere. I can't wait to share these blogs with you.
To quote the originator's intent in creating it, "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."
The Rules:
  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. To quote her description of this award: 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."
My Picks: Rob Ibjema's paintings are an exciting mix of abstract design and color that turn out to be cars. Frank Gardner is an American painter living in San Miguel, who shares lots of great info on his blog and his paintings are wonderful. Jennifer Bellinger paints the best lemons anywhere and her beautifully executed still lives, both large and small, are total eye candy. Liza Hirst is from Berlin and paints beautiful street scenes and still life. Jennifer McChristian, a California painter whose dramatic paintings say more with less.
