Arte y Pico award (my shrunken ego rejuvenates)

Thanks to Deborah O'Sullivan
for awarding this blog the Arte y Pico award. I can't get over the kindness and encouragement of the folks who read this blog regularly. Thanks so much! And by the way, as one who loves watercolor and horses, I can recommend Deborah's Epona Studios blog. It's interesting to see how the works develop over time, and the translucence of the medium really works well for her subject: dressage horses.

The rules of the award suggest giving the award to five other blogs. I'm going to modify this a bit, and give the award to one blog, although I'm hoping to present several bloggers with a unique award sometime soon. The blog I love to read in my oh-so-limited readinig time is The short, sweet, blog entries are high interest and highly actionable. For example, I didn't even know about the horse exhibit in NYC! Me, only 1.5 hours away from the big apple--how ironic that I find out from someone across the pond. Oh well, I'm so glad to know about it :-)

The designer of this award has asked that the following be passed along with it:

The origin of the Arte y Pico Award: "This prize has arisen from the daily visits that I dedicate to many blogs which nourish me and enrich me with creativity. In them, I see dedication, creativity, care, comradeship, but mainly, ART, much art. I want to share this prize with all those bloggers that entertain me day to day and to share this prize with those who enrich me every day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few. The people I will name today deserve this prize, as do the very long serious list of bloggers I also enjoy to read. But I will name the first 10 and leave the rest of the work to all the bloggers that visit other's blogs and are nourished by them."

Here are the rules, if you decide to pass the award further to remarkable blogs in blogosphere worth to mention:

The rules:
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.
2. Each award should have the name of the author with a link to their blog.
3. Award winners have to post the award with the name and link to the blog of the person who gave them the award.
4. Please include a link to the “Arte Y Pico” blog so that everyone will know where the award came from.
5. Show these rules.


  1. Congratulations Stacey! I enjoy your insights and reading your blog too. I am proud of you.

  2. Stacey, Congratulations on your well-deserved award. Your writing is amazing and your blog is so informative and entertaining. A cut above! Way to go!
