More from the Happy Art Award

I've spent the day happily painting inspired by the work
of the artists on my blog list, and my Facebook and Instagram
friends, and by artists around the world.  My painting of
a Toronto beach scene is not done, but I made great progress
and do feel happy.

Suddenly I remembered this -- The Happy Art Award.  Actually
The Barbara Muir Happy Art Award -- a kind of Oscar
for artists designed by me.  But why me you ask?  And why
not?  I reply.  I thought it up one day in response to the many
blog awards going around at the time, and sent it out to all
the artists on my blog list.

Forgive me now, but if you're reading this, you have won the
award, and one day when I am very rich there will be a
monetary prize attached.  But for now to all my artist friends,
collector friends, art appreciator friends, art inspiring friends,
galleries, and art show curators -- to everyone in short who
helps me get this job of art done -- you win my lovely
award.  Your art, friendship, support makes me happy and
that's why you win!

Have a loving art day!

Thank you Verna,

I would send it to you directly, because your work makes me over the moon happy,
but every hand action is a drag right now.
