Purple Skirt Laundry

Watercolor 7"x 7"
$120 matted / $160 matted & framed

For international or expedited shipping, please contact me prior to purchase.

I have two awards I'd like to take care of in one shot--well that's how I'm going to do it anyway. I'm honored to receive them both, but because of time, I'm sending them out to four people instead of seven for each award.
For the passionate painting award given to me by Chris Beck:

Martha Miller (yes, my sister, but she would get this award anyway, because, well...check out her blog and website)
Dean Grey (What a great self portrait--just full of passion!)
Bruce MacEvory (A very talented watercolorist. Also, another dynamic self portrait)
Don Gray (I love his series of doors--also you may have to go to his older posts, but check out his video of doors!)

The Lemonade Award is given to bloggers that show a positive attitude and/or gratitude. It also exemplifies people who have a willingness to share their ideas, support, and online friendship. (The award is posted on the side of my blog), given to me by Dean Grey: (I wanted to tell about this award when posting my painting of the lemon tree--just pretend I did!)

Barbara Fox (Lovely watercolors!)
Sheila Vaughan (beautiful atmospheric oil paintings!)
Ron Morrison (I particularly like the pile up of junk cars!)
Melissa Mead (A busy mother who happens to do beautiful paintings!)

As I'm linking, I'm realizing that all of these people deserve the passionate painter award and all deserve the lemonade award, so you may choose either award, or both, or none! Why not?! If you want to follow the rules you'll put a link to where you got the award, then list seven people deserving of--linking to them as well and telling each one, somewhere on their blog that they have received the award. You can also list, if you wish, seven things you love. Here are mine:

My family, Breakfast, The moon, Walking, Creating things (all kinds of things!), Tea (There goes the kettle), Reading a good book, Camping, Magic, Music... I have more than seven, I could go on and I'm not being very specific, like what kind of tea and what foods for breakfast and where do I like to camp and what type of music---I'm just keeping it as short as I can--must go pick up my granddaughter--speaking of love...

Thanks for passing the award onto me. That's very much appreciated.

"Purple Skirt Laundry" is awesome!

I love the different patterns and textures of the clothing, from the striped socks to the frilly dress.

Great color choices too! Pinks, blues, creams, and grays all working in harmony.

Who knew doing the laundry could be so beautiful!
