Butterfly Award


Well, I'm tickled pink because Margaret Storer-Roche awarded me this Butterfly Award! I'm watching her site all the time to see her colorful interpretations of the southwest, and value her observations. Nobody does it as Margaret does it.

Here are the rules that go with the award :

1. Put the logo on your blog, you can right-click and copy it from above.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you

3. Nominate 10 other blogs for this award
4. Add links to those blogs

5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs

6. Give a reason why you consider their blogs cool.


So, to live, the award must be passed along. Here's my list, in no particular order:
Speck (http://specksbrain.blogspot.com) has some EDM, some sketches and blogs of things around her, like the cat on her hubby. Then go to her other blog for some witty writing about stuff.
Jim (http://bmgarnersketches.blogspot.com) covers a wide range. One day a semi-truck, another day Paris or a liquor store. Check out his doctors exam table!
Karen (http://karensandstrom.blogspot.com) has pleasant blogging with her great sketches. Mix of pen/ink and color.
Don (http://donmcnulty.blogspot.com) has a variety of images in pen/ink and in color. A retired Canadian who stays busy.
Marva (http://pencil-paper-paint.blogspot.com) is into many art mediums. Sketching is predominantly EDM challenges. I like her composition skills.
Nina (http://ninajohansson.blogspot.com) is a Swedish contribution to the blog world, with urban sketches and neat montage sketches.
Rose (http://rose-anglaise.blogspot.com) is multimedia and a mom. I like her family touches to her art and blogs, and her watercolor sketch layouts.
EJ Mordasky (http://winnasworld.blogspot.com) has a masterpiece for every post. She spends the time to get everything just right and has a style of her own.
Douglas (http://douglasthayer.blogspot.com) has both pen/ink and color sketches with a mix of topics and blogs with more details. Love his power plant and train machinery. As an artist/blacksmith combination, he MUST be creative.
Ryan (http://ryanssketchez.blogspot.com) has sketches of vehicles and buildings and other stuff. I think, being a guy, I find interest in his view of things.

That's it for this blog. No sketch this time. Just fun surfing around blog sites.

I'm delarious with glee over the Butterfly--! Thank you so very much and I will continue to try to send it on--one goes 'back at cha'--and also to some of the same people you chose---It's great to be rewarded for being so "into" the sketch journal mindset. Semper Fi, if that pertains!
