Sunshine Award


I received a wonderful message from fellow artist, Linz at, whose beautiful works showcasing her creativity (painted storage boxes) I greatly admire, has nominated me for the “Sunshine Award”!  The ‘Sunshine Award” is awarded to bloggers who: “light up the corners of our minds” and “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” I am thrilled and honored to have received such recognition, thank you so very much Linz! :)

I would like to spread the sunshine and nominate the bloggers who I feel should be recognized!

Upon receiving the “Sunshine Award”, please complete the following:

1.)    Thank the person who gave you this award in one of your blog posts.

2.)    Fill out the Q&A below.

3.)    Please choose up to 12 bloggers who you would like to pass this award to.


1.)    What is your favorite color? If I’m painting it’s a very dark Magenta and Cobalt blue – they are mysterious and striking.

2.)    What is your favorite animal?  Dogs for sure, even though I don’t own one.

3.)    What is your favorite number?  Great question, two – makes a couple is perfect!

4.)    What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?  Love my coffee – everyday, all day!

5.)    What is your favorite alcoholic drink?  White wine and a freezing cold beer after working in the yard under a hot Texas sun!

6.)    Facebook or Twitter?  Neither – I don’t have accounts at either place.

7.)    What is your passion?  Painting.

8.)    Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts? I rather give unexpectedly than to receive – to touch someone brings me deep satisfaction.

Without further ado, here are my nominees:
