You're My Best Green Mwah Meme

It was a busy day out here in Blogland. I received 2 awards and a meme. Plus Obama won big yesterday, hooray! The thing I love is HOW MANY people went out and voted. That was cool.

This painting is one of my very favorite abstracts I have painted. It's called "You're Green Baby, Oh So Green". The title is a direct quote from 'Free Henry Goodbar, Telepath', which was written by my good friend James. I went to see the play several times, (Noel was in it), and loved that line so much I named a painting after it. I am feeling quite abstract these days, and will be flinging the paint at the vinyl in an abstract manner tomorrow. Wildly.

Then I won this award today. I was one of four featured artists in January at Designer's Depot. There was a Battle of the Artists at the end of the month, and I got the most votes! Thank you to everyone who voted for me. Designer's Depot is a wonderful site, with interesting artists featured and great design information. Check it out here.

THEN I got this from Diane Clancy, the Mwah award, which is a big red kiss. The award is described thusly:

"It's a big kiss of the chaste platonic kind, from me to you with the underlying 'thanks' message implied. I really do appreciate your support and your friendship, and yes, your comments."

Thank you Diane! And here's a great big Mwah! right back at you.

I am passing this award on to: Shoshana Rose, John, (hahahaha!), Sweet Irene, Heather, and Andrea. Mwah!!

Okelly dokelly, now onto the moment you've all been waiting for, neighbors. My Book Meme!! John at Typos.Daylight.Fate tagged me for this meme that I was watching going around, knowing I would catch it eventually. He has earned himself a permanent place on my list of :))

Here's the deal: Pick up the nearest book. Find page 123. Find the first 5 sentences, and post the next 3. Tag somebody or several somebodies.

My book: 'Riches Within Your Reach' by Robert Collier, 1947

"Like attracts like. Praise and appreciation bring back greater praise and appreciation to you. If you want health, happiness, in your life, if you are seeking riches and success, attune your thoughts to these."

I tag: Noel at It's Okay, and Brian at Who Got the Gravy?. More if I feel like it later!

"You're Green Baby, Oh So Green" 2006 32"x30"

I read about "chaste platonic" in the Kama Sutra.

The how to pics there changed my life and ruined my back.

Thank you.
