Purplecat says thanks!

I really want to thank you, each and everyone of you who have dropped by my blog. I appreciate so much that you took the time to look and am so grateful for all the encouragement you have given me. I feel I can go into the new year knowing I am doing something right! I look forward to making more art.

The picture is taken on our local beach on boxing day, it was very cold and windy, but lovely!

This award states: This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY- nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends, they are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these artists.
