Thank you - Aputsiaq

On November 17th Aputsiaq was given a 'kreativ blogger award' from Anna at Me & MOI Aterlier. She was to pass it on to seven other bloggers ... and I was one. :) Thank you, Aputsiaq. I have enjoyed your blog, A Polar Bears Tale, for quite some time ... it is wonderful! I appreciate you passing this on to my new blog.

  1. Wow, THANK YOU, Cathy...I just love your blog too!

    What stunning polar bear paintings! Beautiful!! The Stokes one with the Aurora Borealis is amazing!! THAAAAAAANKS!!!

  2. I thought the polar bear with the Aurora Borealis was magical, too!
    Like your blog!
    Hope you're feeling better.

  3. Just thought you should know that I am the current owner/custodian of the Stokes Polar Bear with Aurora curtain painting. I bought it at auction in London a few years ago. I love it and I love the fact that he painted it in his studio in Greenland on one of Peary's expeditions. My name is Cathy too.
