MOF Gets a Versatile Blogger Award
Well, thank you onelifethislife, and OF COURSE I feel honoured to receive this! It’s quite a challenge to produce an art blog that people actually pay attention to. I guess that I’m doing something right, and that’s a huge thrill for me. Some consider the arts to only be seldom significant hobbies. I beg to differ. I don’t know where I’d be if I couldn’t make, share, observe and receive artistic expression. So, I do what I gotta do.
I can only hope that I become more effective in promoting the arts, especially the visual arts.
To accept this there are, of course, rules to be followed. Regardless, I’m also thrilled about being able to pass this on. Here are the VBA rules:
- Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
- Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
Wow, I actually follow more than that, and it’s NOT easy! Some people I have to mention because I have some artistic relations and correspondence with them, as well as I have respect for their artistic and/or literary output. Here’s 15 in alphabetical order. I hope that you check them out and if you do, definitely tell ‘em I sent ya!

HERE WE GO!
- As God blessed me with life, good health, a keen creative mind, and love my soul belongs to God who; therefore, is the prime director of how I live my life.
- Despite my relationship with God, I am non-conformist and fairly secular in habit.
- My upbringing is the second biggest influence on how I conduct myself.
- The martial arts; predominantly Shotokan karate, is the third most important influence on my character.
- No one has accepted me as completely and unconditionally as my wife Kim.
- I’m intolerant of bigotry.
- I’m far more tolerant of other’s mistakes than I am of my own.
