1. Claire's Sketchbook
2. Charlene Brown's 1150 Word
3. Megha Chhatbar's Art on Sketchbook

With many holiday parties, shopping, and general mayhem, I haven't had much time for art.

I am promising myself today that I will make time for art.

Thanks for visiting my blog and reading the interview, Mary. Unfortunately the comment does not show. Maybe it takes time or maybe you did not fill in the captcha....they use a number in stead of lettering....(these oblique codes can be a nuisance.)

Congratulations with your award which was well deserved. I will also visit the blogs you chose!
