Well I have to figure this out before everyone thinks I am ignoring them. I have been tagged by three different artists. But have not return tagged because I could not figure out how to enter the code, for us old dogs it takes a little longer to keep up. I thought I was doing OK just keeping the blog going.
I have been tagged by:
Please visit these sites, all are terrific artist. Liza is from Dordogne, France. An area of SW France we visited in the Fall of 2004. Wonderful place. She does great work of the area, portraits and paintings of Paris. Triecia's blog, A REASON TO PAINT" is from Melbourne, Australia. It so great connecting with artist from all over the World. Triecia does wonderful moody cityscapes and landscapes. She also keeps us informed of what the art scene is down under.
Joan is another wonderful painter of landscapes, seascapes, still life and more.
So the way this loosely works is that when you're tagged, you divulge 5 little known facts about yourself and then tag 5 other artists. It's a great way to introduce artists whose work you enjoy to a potentially wider audience, as well as have a bit of fun.
Ok No.1 : I did my first mural on the black board in third grade.
No 2: While serving in Vietnam 68-69, in base camp, I did pastel portraits of my buddies girlfriends or wives for them. My mother sent pastels and paper.
This is before internet images, so they were greatly appreciated.
No 3:I have a Grand daughter who has the same look of intensity while she paints, she is three years old. Oh my!
No 4:I am married to a great artist, we get along because her paintings are completely different than mine and we have separate studios, alone together.
No5: I never asked my parents who I was named after before they passed away. Guess I will never know
I now need to tag 5 artists whose work is always impressive. I hope you will check them out. They are:
