I am the happiest person cause I have been awarded with the PASSION FOR PAINTING AWARD twice, by people who I respect very deeply as painters and art experts - Carolina Elizabeth (http://carolinaelizabeth-art.blogspot.com/) and Stephen Dell`Aria (http://plein-air-painter.blogspot.com/). But mostly I am happy because they are people who have been encoraging me all the time since the very start of this blog. Thank you.

Here are the rules:

- List 7 things your love.
- Put a link to the one who picked you.
- Choose 7 others to pass the award to.
- Notify them of the award.

Here are the 7 things I love:

Did I mention painting?

The 7 artists I have chosen:

Hi Galina,
thank you very much for the lemonade award. I felt good that in the blogsphere somebody is appreciative of my oils. Love for art is contagious and a source of inspiration. It is a privilege to have so many dedicated and talented friends; hope the Art Muse sings for all

what a gracious 'thank you ' speech Galina :-)

nice to hear if the things you love.

thanks for the award. it came a time when i'm thinking blog = waste of time, nobody even comments... so there you go, one never knows?

nice painting of macedonia. i've been there & enjoyed it greatly, was in Skopje too , which I liked & even here in this little village, one of my neighbours went to Bulgaria to sing with your national choir. Links everywhere!

This award is a small gesture that made me feel important:) I also think that all people awarded are really wonderful artists and their works should be made popular to more good people.
