An award to crow about

Zowie, someone gave my blog an eggs-citing award. A quote directly from art quilter Diane Evan’s excellent blog DEsigned will explain all:

“The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the Zombie Chicken-- excellence, grace, and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of Zombie Chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the Zombie Chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.”

I wouldn’t dream of angering a chicken, especially a zombified one, so here are some of my fav blogs (though there are many more, check my profile to see the ones I follow.) It appears that all of these blogs are by artists... go figure!

Doodles & Scribbles by fab artist Joyce Shelton. I have some of her Tea Party set and can’t wait to get more!

BARBARA STROBEL LARDON, a talented quilt artist who coincidentally ran a recent post titled “On the Farm.”

Silver Apples of the Moon by illustrator Tara Chang. She often shows her intricate paintings in progress.

Postcards from Cairo by Jenny Bowker, a quilt artist who lived for many years in the Middle East (she now is in Australia.) Don’t miss these amazing images made of fabric.

Dee Sanchez: A Painting Today. And she means it, all inspired by her New Mexican home.

Adventures of a Migrant Art Worker by Larry Moore. Outstanding plein air painting and illustration.

Many thanks to Diane and to these artists who are sharing their work and process with us all. By all means share your favorite blogs in the comments if you like. Happy viewing!
