The Barbara Muir Happy Art Award

show put on by the San Fernando Valley
Arts and Cultural Center in California,
last year at this time. Virtually.)

I am working on a couple of pieces, and it's the weekend --
time for chores and family time.  So I found this post from
last year that reminded me of a sweet time when I could
offer a personally created award to all of the artists I knew.
There is good news.  The painting sold this year -- which
is wonderful.

What I said last year still holds true.  Wishing you a very
happy and creative weekend. And here's some 
thoughts about the award:

"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, writers -- 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!"

I think in a world that is making so many of us feel tense and worried
there has never been a more important time to help one another feel
happy if at all possible."

Have a loving art day!
