A Passion for Painting Award


I would like to thank my wife...my children...my parents...Without your support..... (sniff, sniff)


Seriously though, I've recently been given the honor of receiving the same award THREE TIMES! And I would also like to seriously thank the people that gave me the awards.


I believe one thing I need to do as a recipient is to list 7 things I love. And then list seven other artists to whom the award shall pass.
7 Things I love...
1. My Saviour
2. My family
3. My life
4. My friends
5. My gifts
6. My home
7. My country
7 Artists...

Congrats. on the awards they are well deserved!

I've missed a lot of your work while I was getting ready for my show. Now I'm off to scroll through everything I missed....

It would be difficult to think of anyone more deserving of a 'Passion for Painting' award than yourself. The incredible output that you have achieved would lead one to believe that you worked full time and overtime at nothing else. What's best of all is the enormous development there has been in your art and the pleasure that you have given us all.

Hi Kim. I seem to be painting a LOT these days, so it might take you a while.

Thanks very much Mick. I do feel as though I have 2 or 3 full time jobs. ;)

You SOOO deserve this award. I love your art, love that you use a palette knife and I love your series of painting cities all over the country. Glad to have passed it on. You are very talented!

Well deserved, Bill! Again, the "states" series was quite an enterprise and beautifully done. Thanks for the mention as well!
