Passion for Painting Award

Filed under: Uncategorized — laurenmaurerartworks @ 11:55 pm

I am honored to accept this awesome award! It was given to me by Cathyann Burgess. It is always nice to be recognized – especially by someone who’s art you admire! In receiving this award, I am to list seven things and then seven fellow artists who I love.
Okay – seven things I love:
1. I LOVE my family. They are my everything and I don’t know if I’ve got enough space in this post to say just how much I love them!
2. I love a good book. I’d like to tell you that I read enlightening, smart, sophisticated literature… but really not so much. I’m a plain old fiction fan. I love to get lost in a great story!
3. I love snuggling under warm covers when it is chilly in the house (which does not happen very often because I am always freezing so my house is always toasty!)
4. I love art supplies. Seriously, I have as much fun playing with them as I do actually painting with them. I love the smell of my paints and the feel of my paper. I love going to the supply store and looking around.
5. I love to run.
6. I love being on the water. I love Lake Murray. I love my little pet duckies that come visit me in the summers and boating to restaurants and hearing the water at night and going on the boat and just sitting on the dock!
7. I love to paint! I love how everything I see is an oppurtunity to be a painting. I am always looking at light and colors and shapes and how it all fits together and how I can squeeze it onto canvas or paper!
Alright! And my seven painters I love:
1. Rachel Parker
2. Peggi Habets
3. Alisa
4. Lori Vliegen
5. Anne Marie Propst
6. Dana Cooper
7. Carrie Griesemer
