Corrected Rules for Mona's Mini Blog Award

"Kay Petryszak," (click on art for a detailed view) commissioned miniature portrait by Bill Mundy (see Bill's blog for his step-by-step of this painting.  Kay Petryszak is the current President of Miniature Artists of America, and a very talented miniature painter herself.)

"Kyra," by Akiko Watanabe, 2.5" x 3.5"

"Intricate" by Deb Kierce, 2.5" x 3.5"

Sorry if it got confusing.  I was articulating in my last post about the parameters of this award, but probably not clearly enough in the rules themselves that Mona's Mini Blog Award is aimed toward honoring miniature artists, and ACEO artists who are interested in pursuing miniature art, so to help others steer this award down it's intended path, I'm reposting the rules including this specific, and you can pick up the rules for Mona's Mini Blog Award here:

Acknowledge via link the artist who passes you the award, and pick it up from their blog.  The fun part:  name five of your all-time favorite movies.  Additionally, name your pick for this year's movie of the year.  Then pass the award forward to three miniature or ACEO blog artists you appreciate for their finely detailed art on a small scale, linking them in your post. 

Above is an example of the lovely miniature work by the three mini-artists I chose to pass this award forward to.

Mona! Thanks so much for honoring me with this award! I'm speechless! I feel like I'm at the Oscars! :) I'm thinking of all the movies we've rented...there were a lot of really fun ones. I just need to make sure they were in this past year.

Absolutely fantastic!!!
Highly deserving of your Blog Award!

Hi Mona,
Lovely of you to honor me. And for posting Kay's portrait on your blog. Susie was the girl I would have married. She died when she was 40 - seventeen year's ago but it only sems a bout 5.I've written about her in my autobiography.
I love your blog Mona. x

Bill, you are welcome, and thank you. I am so sorry that Susie is not still with you. I must read that autobiography!
