      Thank you so much Bella, your comments are so appreciated – thank you.

      I love your photography and seeing Maine through your eyes has been a real treat, brought back many wonderful memories and gets me close to the sea once again. I hope many others feel the connection through your work as well.

      Working on a quiet ocean sunrise, hoping to have it completed in the next day or two.

      Have a great week! Mary

  7. Sweet Mary! First of all, congratulations on your very well deserved award! Thank you for thinking of me – I’m so honoured! I know I should accept and do the things I should do…but my job is always stressing me out and I can barely keep up the challenges and reading all wonderful blogs in this blogging community. Yours is one of them – one of those very beautiful blogs that has you captured once you get there. I do hope you will forgive me, I am afraid I’m useless concerning this…

    • Mary says:

      Thank you for your wonderful comments, so appreciated. It’s not a problem at all – enjoy all the many visitors you’ll receive and don’t worry about doing the rest. One day the pressures of your job will subside and you’ll once again be able to enjoy little pleasures. Please enjoy your Sunday and leave the worries of this award behind.

      So nice to hear from you, take care ~ Mary

    It’s a Liebster kind of day. Heartfelt congratulations to you!!

  10. Oh my!! You sure know how to pick the wrong candidate for this award! 😉 Firstly I’ve answered enough questions about me it would seem already and how boring is it to read more about me?? ! Second to choose that many bloggers who’ve not already done this is fairly stress-full, brain-exploding and just-plain-hard. I’ll give it a go for you, Mary, but I do like to complain too.

    It must have taken you days to do this task. Why is an award a task anyway…. Yes I know it is a challenge and it is actually a “FUN sounding challenge” just not where my brain is at at the present time. If i wasn’t fighting with certain people maybe i’d be more prone to say “Oh Boy!” …

    I do much appreciate your thinking of me. I know you don’t know me well enough to realize i am a bit of a curmudgeon about things. Also a little stick in the mud and depressive as well . But i shall try my best.

    Much love, my dear. I adore your art. xoxo
    (ps-honesty is probably my downfall and certainly pisses people off at times. I do hope it doesn’t to do that to you as that’s not my intention! i write all this with a wry smile… 🙂

    • Mary says:

      Oh Linda – what a wonderfully worded reply. It’s really okay if you don’t do the award, in fact it will relieve the stress that comes doing the award.

      I appreciate that you took the time to give you feedback on this activity, because I truly understand.

      I leave it totally up to you, and if you choose not to participate I can’t say that I blame you – it’s okay to say no.

      Most important is that you enjoy your weekend and let this go. Take care and enjoy painting. Mary
