A Passion for Painting - Blog Award !!

The View Toward Manzanillo, CR Oil on Canvas 12x16 Finished I think.

I am the recipient of the coveted "Passion for Painting" blog award!! Thanks - Jill Berry. Now I get to choose 7 others who share this passion; as well as list 7 things I love...
The artist/bloggers that I suggest you check out are ---

Connie Chadwick - Very expressive work, mostly figurative. An inspiration to oil pastel artists.

Robin Cheers - Through thick and thin, paint. She captures the body language of contemplation.

Loriann Signori - In the midst of her obsession with painting, she finds time to encourage the rest of us. Her landscapes take my breath away. And she presents current challenges and less than hoped for results, as well.

Dona Friedman - Quietly working away on landscapes, barnscapes, animals on the porch. Beautiful feeling to her work.

Thomas Torak - Tom's paintings are beautifully rendered and full of life (even when still). The colors are incomparable. (He grinds his own.) And the commentary always amusing.

Elizabeth Torak - Really lovely work in varied subject matter. Not a frequent poster because she's PAINTING.

Steve Goodman - Another whose paintings urge me to simplify. I'm tempted to count his brushstrokes and set that as a challenge for myself. "6x6 in under 35 strokes" or something like that. And his point is made beautifully.

Seven things I love, in no particular order.
1. Courtesy (I'm woeful at this.)
2. Honesty
3. Generosity (From me, needs work.)
4. Family
5. Edy's Lime Popsicles
6. New paintbrushes
7. Friends
