Real Neat Blog Award in Seahorse Painting

Thank you Ribana for nominating me Real Neat Blog Award! Many thanks and love to you! This is my first Real Neat Blog Award and I’m so pleased and honored! Please visit her neat blog, Popsicle Society to get more inspiration in food, stories and travelling. Copied from Ribana’s,  the award was started back in 2014 by Dear Kitty 1, to give bloggers more recognition.

To honor the rules and stick to my theme Coastal Summer, I painted a seahorse, a remarkable marine fish. Not just for their beautiful shape, but the male ability to carry the pregnancy and deliver the seahorse babies to the sea world as well are amazing. This seahorse painting I’ve made it into the Real Neat Blog Award logo. I painted it with watercolor which I’m smitten with. Hope you all, like it! And I shared my painting stages!

  3. Congrats on your award. Loved the seahorse watercolour. We have something similar, pipefish. I’ve seen them around our boat’s propeller in shallow bays. – Margy
