Art Blog Award

I was given an Art Blog Award from three awesome artists Kathleen Coy, Gail Ragsdale, and Jane Augenstein. The recipient of this award is supposed to list 7 things that she/he loves. Here are my 7 things:

1. I love animals, all kinds.
2. I love bugs, all kinds, except roaches. :)
3. I love my family and friends, including people and pets.
4. I love music, different kinds (rock, pop, classical, jazz, ethnic, and new age).
5. I love gardening. Just wish I had a better back...
6. I love where I live and the view from our house (Pacific ocean).
7. I love good food, especially Japanese, Indian, and Italian.

Now I am giving an Art Blog Award to the following 7 people whose blogs I enjoy so much:

Art By Erika
From Forensic to Fine Art
ARTBYSHEL
Ingrid's Art
Adebanji Alade
James Parker
Mona Conner

Akiko, we used to have pet Madagascar hissing roaches. They are actually cute and even "affectionate" as crazy as that sounds! They only live for 2 yrs. though.

Sheila said...

You are one of my favorite people first, artist and friend.
HUGS!

Erika I know 7 is not enough for you, but please share your top 7 (in any order, that is). :)

Deb, the roach section is the only part I skip in the San Francisco zoo. Actually, Madagascar hissing roaches are not as scary to me as common roaches that FLY. :(

Thanks for the award!

Interesting things you love- Wow I like people who love good food!

James Parker said...

Thank you for the award, and I am blown away by your "My Dear Rainbow" that is now gracing WTTW Art...It is simply superb. Thank you so much.

artbyakiko said...

Adebanji, your blogs are awesome. I hope this award will help more people discover your amazing art!

artbyakiko said...

James, thanks for posting my fox so quickly. Now I see you have extended the deadline. Hope to see more artworks on WTTW! Where is your? ;)

Mona said...

Akiko, thanks so much for the Art Blog Award!
Saw your list, and right around the corner from me here is a Japanese, an Indian, and an Italian restaurant, among others, so come east! I love gardening too, so I guess that would be another we have in common. For a while I was the gardener for the tiny garden in front of our coop.

Enjoyed looking at all the bloggers you listed, some whom I had not seen before. Looks like James Parker has a neat idea, and your fox with the rainbow is a great entry for it. Very interesting to read about Sheila's work in forensics too.

Mona, you seem to live in the best neighborhood for food. I'll be there in no time only if it's close... I would love to see the view from your studio. :)
