Lemonade Awards, Number 3 & 4
I cannot tell you how great I think ALL of you are. I've been honored with a third and fourth Lemonade Award. Linda Steider, an extremely talented glass artist, gave me my third Lemonade Award a couple weeks ago and I have been remiss is posting this. And my fourth Lemonade Award has been given to me by Celeste Bergin, a gifted painter.
First I have to share with you some things about both of these wonderful ladies:
Linda has 20 years experience as a fiber artist and was introduced to kilnformed glass in 1996. I just 'met' Linda through this wonderful world of cyberspace a couple of months ago and she is a great person. I'm so impressed with her work that I'm enrolled in a class she will be teaching, Powderology, this July when she heads to D & L Art Glass in Denver. Check out Linda's work as she is a talented glassist!
Celeste is another artist that I greatly admire, not only for her skill as a painter, but for her graciousness. She has regular exhibits and I find her work to be rich and moving. You can see more of her art at her website.
Thank you both for this award! I am deeply touched and honored.
Whew, that was a long acceptance speach! Now on to the explanation of a Lemonade Award. It is awarded to bloggers that show a positive attitude and gratitude.
Here are the rules for the award:
