I would like to thank Linda Vincent for the following award. It is so nice to know that people visit your blog and enjoy your art - now my turn to choose 5 of the many blogs I visit for this award.
Special People

There are lots of people I would like to mention here, but I've had to choose 5. Here are the rules regarding this special award:
1. You pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribution to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and the link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4. The award-winners and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of Arte y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award. So....... here goes!
My first award goes to my very dear blogging friend Dot Christian. Dot has a fantastic blog, always lots of eyecandy and always very ispirational !!! There is always lots of news of family and friends (furry ones included) and lots of sharing of Dots wonderful art! Her blog is visited regularly by many fellow artists and friends, we love seeing what she has been up to.
My second award is for the very talented Belinda Schneider. Belinda has been the source of much inspiration for much of my art too. Love her flair for shape and colour and the many different techniques she uses (and shares) in her art. I particularly love the backgrounds she designs with her handcarved stamps. Always an interesting blog to visit.
My third award is for Sara Lechner. Her blog, The Fabric of Meditation is just awesome. Sara is a wonderful textile artist and shares so much of her art on her blog (also her beautiful studio!!!) I love her textile art and have a few pieces in my collection. Sara's work is truly inspirational.
For those of you who love journalling your will enjoy my fourth award.... it goes to Zorana. I love visiting Zorana's blog to see the wonderful art she creates. Lately Zorana has been posting a lot of art from her journal...amazing. Check out the whimsical cats she created recently. Wonderful artist and another very inspirational blog.
My fifth award goes to Kelsey. What a truly inspiring and informative blog. Kelsey is such a generous person... she shares so many techniques and products etc. on her blog. Lots and lots of pics. and always very interesting.
I hope everyone enjoys visiting these blogs as much as I do....
