Wow! I have been awarded an "Arte y Pico Award".
Apparently this is what it's all about:
“The “Arte y Pico” award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and their talents, whether it be writing, artwork in all media. When you receive this award it is considered a special honor. Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to at least 5 others.” ... and originated here:
I'm really honored,
First to have been given it by such a wonderful artist & blogger, not to mention friend Judith Heartsong.
Second, because blogging is really quite a new form of expression for me... I'm horribly dyslexic, and have always hated writing as a result, but I find this blogging thing quite wonderful. Not only putting thoughts & ideas out there... but enjoying all of the wonderful knowledge & energy other bloggers put forward.
And finally, because it hasn't been until recently that I have actually allowed myself the title "artist". And truth be told, it was the little one, who introduced me that way first. I'm still getting used to it. And frequently fall back on "web designer", "flash animator/programmer", and "teacher"... sigh, I'll get there.
Ok now to pass it forward.
My 5 picks:
sethepotter The charachter & fun of his pottery & ideas keep my head spinning & laughing. This is wonderful work.
Keri Smith's Wish Jar her books and blogs have been been an inspiration and a catalyst for me in many ways.
The SteamPunkWorkShop... I think all I can say here is wow...and I wan to make myself a bus! Only mine will be an art bus.
Skull-A-Day not that I'm particularly in to sculls, but this guy had tenacity, and some wonderful ideas. Images of sculls made from everything imaginable, and plenty unimaginable. Wonderful imagry. And the boys absolutly loved it...
Nanibird This satisfies my need for paper art. I love the idea that a piece of paper, can be turned in to so much more, folding, cutting, printing, playing :-) Nani bird's are free to download & build.
