My Last Liebster

I gave 4 Liebster Awards last month, so I have 1 more left. The whole point of the award is to give it to a blogging artist who has under 200 followers who inspires you.

I do not give this last one halfheartedly. I was happy with my 4... then I met Kelly Medford at the St Simon's paint-out last month.

Kelly studied here in the states and then moved to Rome to paint en plain air. She has this great rig that includes a Julian half-box easel, her bike and an old umbrella. She has taken the plunge and lives a life I could only with to live if I had the courage. Her work is fantastic and she is just a great person to know!

Here is how it works, please notice that included links from my previous 4 recipients...

As part of the tradition it is passed along to 5 bloggers that have

motivated and inspired you.

To accept the award you must:

1. Link back to the person who gave it to you and thank them

2. Post the award to your blog

3. Give the award to3- 5 bloggers with fewer than 200 followersthat you appreciate and value.

4. Leave a comment on the blogs to let them know that they have been offered this award.

Here is my list of recipients. All of these artists are people I quietly follow and enjoy seeing their work day in and day out. Their work keeps me inspires me and reminds me how important it is to paint everyday.

Here is my list of under 200 bloggers who certainly deserve to be watched more than they are! 

1. Mike Alonzo
2. Karen Werner
3. Claudia Hammer
4. Kathryn Townsend
5. Kelly Medford
