I've been given an award by April on her Ugly Rabbit blog. She's a wonderful artist in Ireland, so check out her blog if you can. This is an art blog award and I'm not sure how artistic mine is, but I would like to thank April for thinking of me. I've never kept to one theme for this blog and it's always been a little of this and a little of that. If random craziness is an art form, then I guess my blog fits. In order to accept this award I'm to list 7 things I love and nominate 7 other bloggers. The last time I listed 7 things I loved, I picked 7 national parks. I wanted to do something different, so I decided to pick 7 artists and one piece of their work I particularly love. Nothing like making things complicated, huh? A lot of these we've studied in school and that's been a lot of fun. Here are my 7 artists --
  1. Leonardo da Vinci -- The Last Supper
  2. Henri Matisse -- Woman with a Hat
  3. Vincent Van Gogh -- The Starry Night
  4. Pierre Auguste Renoir -- Girl with a Hoop
  5. Raphael -- Transfiguration
  6. Claude Monet -- The Cliffs at Etretat
  7. Edgar Degas -- The Dance Class

Now I pick 7 bloggers to receive this award and they are --

  1. Paris
  2. Hilary
  3. Adrienne
  4. Doda
  5. Stephanie
  6. Kate
  7. Stephen
