The foot of a tree in the park

Sitting on a bench in the park drawing another tree. They are the best models, they stay still and hold a pose for hours sometimes. And they never complain when it doesn’t look exactly like them.

Award Night

Hello, I was recently nominated for the ‘Inspiring Blog Award’, and the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’, by Ryeder at:

http://ryeder.wordpress.com/

I accept and humbly say thank you.

The awards require 7 facts about myself, which is trouble, the hardest thing to write about is the self, for me anyway. I’m not really sure how this works, but I was encouraged to join the fun, so I will try.

1. I have 2 beautiful children and 4 even more beautiful grandchildren.

2. I have been self-employed most of my life, as a sign painter.

3. I mix healthy food with junk food for a well balanced diet.

4. I paint beautiful pictures of horrible things, with the hope to inspire people to think, about social justice, amongst other things.

5. I am much funnier in person. If you were here you would be laughing.

6. I spend most of my time alone in this studio.

7. I like cats and pie and ice cream.

That took much longer than you might think. Now a list of 15 fellow bloggers who I will nominate in turn. Some of you may have already received these awards. One or two are not frequent bloggers at all, but I know them, and they inspire me personally.

Sitting in the park across the road from the centre of the universe drawing a tree and thinking about karma. A balancing act.
