Speaking of Myrna

I discovered Myrna Wacknov's blog several month's ago by reading a Mike Bailey's blog post. You know how that goes. We live in an interconnected digital village. Well Mryna, bless her talented artistic heart, bestowed on my blog an award that has been making the rounds. Yawn... I didn't sleep too well last night, so I'm now gonna wind down, have a cup of tea, and think about a good night's snooze. I'll go into this award sometime tomorrow. Yawn... Goodnight. Nest day and I'm bright eyed and bushy tailed. Mryna Wacknov has awarded my blog with the Arte y Pico Award. Arte y Pico is a blog from Uruguay who's blogger has come up with this award. It is being passed from blog to blog and is kinda of a cool way of slapping a fellow artist on the back and saying about their blog "good show!" So what the hell does Arte y Pico mean? Loosely translated from Spanish to English. it means "Wow" or "The Best Art" or "Over the Top". Oh yea, it comes with a few guide lines or rules, and herewith I delineate them: Pick five blogs you really dig for their creativity, design, interesting material, and for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what the language. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone. (I have no idea how to put my name on the award!) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given him or her the award. The award winner and the one who has given the award have to show the link Arte y Pico blog so that one and all will know the origin of this handsome award. The envelope please...tear and ripping sound...These are my five award winners of the Arte y Pico: 1. Milind Mulich, a wonderful acrylic and watercolor artist in India. 2. Car-A-Day, a Welsh painter that lets you feel the power and the speed. 3.Jennifer McChristian, an oil painter with a definite Wow factor. 4. Nathan Fowkes, a land sketch artist that will amaze you. 5. Silvina, another talented oil painter with a vicious dog named Cosmo. There you have them, five bodacious bloggers!...applause...curtain drops. Hey, I gotta whole lotta other fantastic blog sites I visit, but the Arte y Pico only asks for five, so I reluctantly stop here

You sure deserve one of these. Had a look at those you mentioned for a new infusion of wonderful painters.
One of the benefits of these is getting familiar with other peoples' work.

Thanks Bonnie. Tomorrow I go out to paint with the Golden Acrylic Open...we will see.

silvina said...

David, thanks!!! Very kind of you sir. But, uh, I noticed you didn't list any of the other artist's pet's names. I must be special. Or at least Cosmo is.

David Lobenberg said...

Your welcomed! I can't tell you how relieved I am now that I know that Cosmo does not have a taste for human flesh. Please give him my regards. Again, very nice bird painting. I could mention something about pegboard, but I won't.

Hey, what do I do now? How do I post the picture of this award on my blog?

Drag the logo to your desk top, Silvina. Then just follow the directions. You need to print the rules, then list 5 blogs you dig with links. You can go to Mryna's blog and look at the rules as well, since I twiked them a wee bit with my own language. You are also suppose to have my name below and part of the award with a link to my blog. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how one adds the name, You might inquire from some other people.
