SUNSHINE AWARD – 17 June 2012 –

“The Sunshine Award is given to bloggers who other bloggers feel have been inspiring, positive and offer help where needed. They basically spread a little sunshine as they walk along their blogging pathway.”

Today for the first time I received an award here on WordPress and I’d like to thank immensely Sevenleggedexpressjourney who nominated me (I recommend a visit to the blog because you will become easily addicted to its hilarious characters).

Here is the rules for the Sunshine Award:

  1. Include the award’s logo on your blog.
  2. List 10 facts about yourself (or answer 10 questions).
  3. Nominate other bloggers for this award.
  4. Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs letting them know they have been nominated.
  5. Share the love and link to the person who nominated you

First of all, I’d like to pass the Sunshine Award to the following blogs that I find truly inspiring:

  1. Anarty Online art journal.
  2. Lorna Collins A Contemporary Fine Artist.
  3. surface & surface Art & Design Choice Cuts by Mark.
  4. Jared Bramblett Gorgeous shots.
  5. Leanne Cole An equally good photographer.
  6. Petra’s 356 photographs Every day a beautiful picture.
  7. Blunt crayon Arts and culture.
  8. Viaplanaviablog An amazing catalan artist.
  9. I love green inspiration Italians do it better. Period.
  10. Caramelize Life Fresh recipes.
Now, 10 facts about me:
  1. I am an aesthete.
  2. I’m studying Art History at University.
  3. My favorite artist is currently Francesca Woodman, but I often change my mind.
  4. My favorite painting is Portrait of Mademoiselle Chanel by Marie Laurencin, that stole my heart 7 years ago at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris.
  5. I also love architecture and design, and I always dream to sketch my future home.
  6. I love food and I’d love to be a better cook, but I’m too lazy to improve.
  7. (As in #6) Usually I’m too lazy for everything and I love sleeping under a warm duvet.
  8. I listen to a lot of music. My favorite band is Beirut (and I’m learning to play ukulele), but I like many different genres.
  9. I fell in love with cinema watching A Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick, but I grew up with Some Like it Hot by Billy Wilder and I adore French movies.
  10. My favorite color is dark gray, slate, asphalt (from here the blog name), which I find very elegant.
Now’s your turn!
Thank you again to Sevenleggedexpressjourney,
