Thank You, Edward Burton

Yesterday I opened my mail to discover that I had been chosen to receive the "I Care" keepsake. This award was created by James Parker to show his appreciation of fellow bloggers. James is a highly talented artist with a driving desire to keep his audience laughing. But more importantly, he possesses a beautiful heart.
Here is the poem James wrote to accompany the keepsake
I had some folks come visit, my humble little blog
And leave a thoughtful comment, 'bout the painting I had
I don't know how to tell them, or even where to start,
Of the wondrous gift they gave me, bringing joy to my heart
Some days are dark and lonely...I feel that life's a bore
But those simple words of kindness, have brought sunshine
to my door.
Now, this Keepsake has been presented to me by an extremely gifted artist, Edward Burton. Edward has proven to be an inspiration to many fellow blogging artists, including myself. On top of a heavy schedule of creating top notch paintings, it seems he always has time to comment upon fellow artists work...knowing just what to say. Thank you, Edward.

Since I am the humble and honored recipient of this keepsake, I should pass it on to two deserving artists who make the blogosphere a brighter place.
Karen Hargett
A very talented lady who puts her genuine love of animals on display for everyone to see in each painting she does. Her comments are truly helpful and inspiring. You must check her out.
Trevor Lingard
If you are looking for absolutely amazing watercolor art, then look no further. This man makes the almost impossible appear easy...the mark of talent! I always enjoy it when he stops by my blog. Please check him out.
