The Arte y Pico Award

While on holiday I had the honour of having my blog awarded the Arte y Pico Award by Karen Hargett.
Karen is an artist working mainly in graphite or pastel, have a look at her blog to see some lovely work.
Thank you Karen.

As part of the ongoing process I would like to pass the award on to the following five artists, I get a great deal of pleasure reading their blogs on a regular basis.
Making a Mark by Katherine Tyrrell - for me simply the best all round source of art information on the net.
Tracy Hall - a brilliant watercolour artist.
Laura Hardy - beautiful coloured pencil portraits of animals.
Sheona Hamilton-Grant - animals in graphite, always a pleasure to see new work
Nicole Caulfield - stunning still life and portraits in coloured pencil
Just a note to explain the origin of the Art y Pico award and the "rules" for accepting:-
The Origin of The Arte y Pico Award and Rules are:
The Arte y Pico Award has arisen from the daily visits that are made to many blogs, by you, which nourish and enrich you with creativity. In them, you must see dedication, creativity, care, comradeship, but mainly, ART, much art. You want to share this prize with all those bloggers that entertain and enrich you day to day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few.
