An Art Award

Green Yucca
Oil on Canvas - SOLD

Thanks to Angela Elledge for my art award! I'm hoping to start doing a little plein air painting with Angela and the group from Dallas as soon as this Dallas weather decides to cooperate. Angela has a passion for painting AND teaching, and she also has a gift for bringing artists together.

This award asks you to list seven things you are passionate about, and share the award with other passionate artist friends.

I am passionate about:
1) my family (which includes my fat puggies)
2) my friends
3) painting like crazy
4) animal rescue
5) my faith
6) cheese
7) mocha coffee with whippy creme on top

I'd like to share this award with these wonderful people. If you have not seen their art yet, please pay a visit - you will be amazed!!

That yucca looks similar to the century plant we have here. It grows a really long spike, straight up into the aire. They aren't near as pretty as that yucca. Congrats on your award, Nancy! Have a ggod week and give the fatties a hug!

Manon said...

A very sensitive painting of the Yucca Nancy! I like how you lost the edges on the distant mountains it really makes the yucca the focus. Beautiful!

I love this painting, the colors are absolutely beautiful. said...

Hi Nancy, I have tried to bring up the logo on my blog, don't have clue how it's done. I also tried to high light your name and Liz's name in giving my thanks to the both of you. Still lots to learn about blogging. But you both have my sincerest thanks and appreciation. Joan said...

Hi Nancy,
