I'm so lucky to have received an award from Grahame Butler, see his boat post which I love, thanks Grahame, I'm so chuffed to get this. Now for my bit, I have to list 7 things I love before passing on this award to 7 blogs that I feel worthy so here goes
7 things I love:
1. My other half Ronnie, I have to say that or I'll be shot at dawn!
2. Animals, especially dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and I'm quite taken by toulouse dewlap geese, we have 7!
3. Films, I love murder films, horror films, political dramas, Dirty Harry, war films
4. Inspector Morse, I am soooooo addicted, I cannot miss a repeat of a repeat
5. My dog Willow, I know I've mentioned animals but Willlow deserves a section all of her own 'cos she's special
6. My family, another must have mention for fear of death
and finally
7. Music, I can easily live without the television but no way could I manage without music, just wish I could sing instead of murdering every song!
And now for those 7 blogs, these are listed in no particular order but are blogs I enjoy visiting because, of course, the art but also because some really are just so pretty to look at and are inspiring to me.

1. Terry Millers graphite art is simply stunning

2. I love Karen's blog, it's just so pretty

3. Chirstine Langman's art is just amazing

4. I want all of the pretty things on this blog

5. this is just pretty, pretty, pretty

6. colour pencil portrait art at it's best

7. and equine art to die for.

Congrats, sounds similar to being tagged on facebook except it has an award, too! I'll have to dig through my photos and see if I have any you might be able to use. Thanks an awesome idea, btw. Mind if I use it too later on? Great way to get photos. I'm a member of a caique forum and I get a lot of photos from other members.

Hi Karie! I just noticed you nominated me for your blog award! :) That's so exciting!

I'm just in the middle of revising my blog, so when I have the new formatting done, I'll do up my post with the seven items and the seven blogs.

Thanks so much! Your work is great, and it means a lot that you like my art as well. Us animal artists have to help each other out right? :)

(Oh... and my name is spelled wrong in your post... LOL Christina Langman... :) No biggie though)
