What an honour it was to find that Gayle Mason of Fur in the Paint had selected my blog as one of five to receive the Arte y Pico award - thank you Gail. This is indeed a compliment as I am a big fan of Gail’s coloured pencil work, especially her cats, and highly recommend you take a look at her blog if you haven’t done so already.

Arte y Pico Award Origin and Rules:

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.
