She questioned the purple parachuting frogs. I had to explain (patiently, of course) that I don’t know what they are doing yet. I won’t know until I paint what is happening on the ground. Although I think something should be hiding beneath the blighted flowers with a weapon. Not sure of the particulars yet.
I think I taught her a valuable art lesson, namely to always pretend you know what you are doing in the face of hard evidence to the contrary. She was so taken in by my concept that she began to paint the airship the frogs were jumping from. I am not at liberty to share her work with you here. Some artists are sensitive about works in progress.
Today, my joy jolt came from the kindness of other bloggers eager to see what I will wear on the red carpet at the 2012 Blogging Award ceremony! Since this ceremony is a figment of my imagination, I just know that I will make the best-dressed list! (Maybe I ought to open a window next time I paint.)
Ronnie over at Morristown Memos has awarded me the Kreativ Blogger Award.
Ronnie is the antidote to all the bad news that bombards us daily. Hurry over to read her unique take on life – she is shrinking, so you’ll want to catch her before she can no longer reach the keyboard.
Ottabelle over at Conversing with Novels has awarded me the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.
I am supposed to write 7 or 10 (or possibly 17) things about myself that you don’t already know, but if you’ve been reading along, you probably know everything by now, so I am going to risk the wrath of the blogging gods and skip this step.
I’m also supposed to pass these awards along to other bloggers. I am taking the easy way out here, too. I have a list of wonderful blogs in my Good Reads list. If you haven’t read these bloggers, you ought to. And if you are one of these bloggers, consider yourself the recipient of these awards.
Thanks to all the bloggers who do such great work and still find the time to support other bloggers (like me).
