Congratulations to the group blog Sketching in Nature for winning the 2009 "Going Greener" award from Making A Mark. This award is for the art blog which is most stimulating for getting us in touch with nature and the environment. The blog does that by featuring artists from all over the world who use their art as a way to closely observe animal behavior, plant growth, and weather phenomena.
And I'm very excited to say that Imaginative Realism won the "Best Book by an Art Blogger Blue Ribbon." Thanks, Making a Mark, and thanks to all who voted.
There's still time if you'd like to be part of the voting on one of the remaining awards, "Best Artwork on an Art Blog." The nominees are Karin Jurick, Gary Nemkosky, and Pierre Raby.
