Comment from Scott:
 Siggi,
I just wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for the Kreativ Blogger Award.
I thought this was appropriate because I enjoy your site and also appreciate our other conversations.
Have a great day!

.
Then I panicked.  This happened twice before.

  •  ………”Be Careful What You Wish For…You Might Get IT ☺ from Wild Pomegranite Siggi of SiggiofMaine .
  •   She’s a writer, a painter, and a lovely gal. Fri, 11 Nov 2011 … I looked at the rules and had no idea how to
     do some of the things, and I’d only been blogging since June 5, 2011 and no computer skills to speak of.

======================= and

  • December 19, 2011,  I am pleased to inform you that you have won   

        Poets Rally Week 58 The Perfect Poet Award,this is an official award, you win because
you are nominated by a previous winner or you have outstanding contribution to poets rally along the way this year…

So along comes Scott and I sigh, what am I going to do, but I think maybe this time I can do it.
It seems more simple this time.  So here goes my attempt.

Ten things about myself that readers do not know.

  • Paintings labeled “cataract paintings” are from a period my eyesight was failing due to cataracts…
  • I didn’t know it at the time that I had cataracts,
  • I thought I was just “getting old” and needed new glasses…
  • the character of many of these are different from earlier paintings
  • and was encouraged to describe them as “Cataract Paintings” by by artist friends.
  •  After the surgeries in Nov/December there was another change in my painting style. 

2.  I have had a passion for photography since I was 13. 

  • As a  Photographer my motto is: if it moves, doesn’t move…snap it. 
  • I am fascinated by body language of people and animals

         and abstract elements in the mundane.

4.  I have lived in Pensacola Florida, Downeast Maine, Japan and Puerto Rico
5.  Have two adult children that live in Texas and Colorado.

     and the rest of the great team of the mid 1950’s while they waited for the train one day.
8.  Have been married/divorced twice…
