Paying It Forward ...

   A few days ago, Linda Roth awarded me the Liebster award. Apparently, it is awarded on the basis of what is considered a good and worthy blog that has less than 200 followers. I have a blog list of about 200 that I follow, so it is not an easy decision to come up with only 5; I would nominate almost all of them. However, I have decided to consider consistency of posts, and sharing ideas and giving help with art problems.


These lucky bloggers have the choice of passing on the Liebster to 5 more worthy blogs, or just passing.

Additionally, I must divulge 5 things you don't know about me. OK, this is an EEK for me, as I'm somewhat of a private person, but ...

   I do not own a TV. I got rid of it a year ago, and don't really miss it at all, and I definitely don't miss    
    the advertising.
  I think I could live without creating art as I do now. I could not live without a horse!

  I LOVE Italy - the food, the people, the language, the art, the architecture, the landscapes ...

  I have never been in a Wal-Mart.

  I collect frogs - wooden, stone, clay, papier mache, glass ... anything.

OK, Linda, I paid it forward!


  1. Congratulations on your Awsome Award, and thank you for sharing it with us.
    We loved learning those special things about you that make you unique... I think your world sounds so peaceful!

  2. Hi Kathryn,
    Thank you so much for sharing my blog with the World! I really appreciate it. I love your art and potential in your paintings. You have a great idea and show the life as it is. I call it realism and you are a very good Contemporary Realism Artist!
    Keep painting and inspire others :0)

  3. Congratulations on the award! I am so glad to know that someone else lives without TV! Greetings from Italy. Rita.

  4. Congratulations, Kathryn! You really deserve it! You chose great blogs to pay it forward!

  5. Oh Kath - Thanks so much for the compliment! I truly appreciate you nominating my blog for the Liebster award. So sweet of you! OMG, I can't believe you don't own a TV. I don't watch it much, but do enjoy my Netflix movies! I know what you mean about not being able to live without a horse (and for me, all my other fur babies too!) Hurray for you, never being in a Walmart!! You're my hero! Frogs hugh? Somehow that doesn't surprise me! Ribbit! Thanks again and have a great day!!

  6. The painting is coming on very well. I would call you a very successful person since you could actually get rid of your TV. I wish my wife could do that too, so I could watch a bit of sports ;)
    Can you someday post a photo of your frog collection? It would be most interesting.
    Best wishes,
