Travel Sketchbook & Passion for Painting Award


How was your week? Last week tagging along with Steve on his business trip went well. I got to meet some of his colleagues and their wives. During the day, I took tons of photos and posted some of them on my other blog and flickr. While away I was able to sketch a few times, below are the entries made in my moleskin sketchbook.

This was the mountain view from our hotel room.

While I was away, Trish Siegel nominated me for “A Passion for Painting” award. Thank you Trish for the honor!

The recipient of this award must share seven things he/she is passionate about, and then pass the award on to seven others (who are free to participate or pass). Here goes … Seven things I am passionate about:

1. Eating and cooking healthy food, avoiding preservatives

2. Simplifying my life while adding time spent with friends and loved ones.

3. Following blogs that are not directly related to art, such as: Absolutely Beautiful Things, Chez Larsson, and Orangette

4. Swimming laps

5. My kitty, Slim

6. Morning time spent with my husband, Steve.

7. Working on my art career

Now the seven artists to watch and be inspired by:
Ester Wilson
Stacey Peterson
Jeff Hayes
Ambera Wellman
Kevin Wueste
Heather Smith Jones

Now that the weekend has come to a close I am looking forward to beginning the new week. I will start the week off tomorrow painting. Stay tuned for a new daily painting and thank you for dropping by. Liz
