I have been tagged by Dianne.
I have also been tagged by Carolann.
And yet again I have been tagged by Sharon.
And now I'm supposed to do the same thing to 7 othe
r unsuspecting artists! Oh dear! I hope no-one minds if I combine all these and just do 7 and not 21.

There are also rules -

1. Put a link in your posting to the person who tagged you.
2. List seven (7) unusual things about yourself.
3. Tag se
ven (7) other bloggers at the end of your post and comment on their blogs to let them know.

It has taken me this long to do something about
it, because I didn't have a clue on how to link names. Thank you Di for that.

7 things about myself? Here goes -

1. I finally got my pension card so I can go to Kir
tenbosch for free on a Tuesday.
2. I slaved in the advertising industry for 33 years
and was relieved to finally stop. Ad agencies are heavy work - I was on the media side.
3. I have a son who is 34 years old and lives at th
e top of the world in Sweden with his wife and my grandson (and a granddaughter on the way).
4. I teach fabric painting to a group of people in a
church hall in Maitland - it's a great way to introduce people to some form of painting, and I love their reactions when they finish a piece - they feel so proud.
5. I have season tickets to Newlands and am a staunch Western Province and Stormers rugby supporter. I also love cricket and am a member of the Western Province Cricket Club. Watching a 5 day test with Australia or England - just the best!! Especially when we beat them!
6. I have never done any fine arts or artistic courses of any kind. The last time I did any form of art was in my matric year. I have been painting now for just over 18 month
s, started off with acrylic and now am sold on oils and watercolour.
7. I love my garden, especially in summertime, and share
it with the birds, moles, snails and caterpillars.

Here are some pictures of my garden!

And now, please forgive me, the following artists whose names I have included.

Carol Hadfield
Thea Burger
Heather Selby
Carol Schiff
Sylvia Jensted
Susan Carlin
Dianne Mize

Liz, I don't mind that you tagged me. I was tagged twice myself, so just like you, I will tag 7 other unsuspecting artists (not 14). It is fun ready facts about each other. Love you paintings of Roland!

Dear Liz, it was so nice to get to know you in 7 sentences! I am amazed you have only been painting for 18 months, you have a natural talent! I think we artists all love our gardens, mine is looking amazing at the moment, I have quite a few jasmine creepers and they are all a mass of flowers and heady aroma!

WOW.... That watercolor is spectacular... Looking forward to seeing how the oil comes out... You obviously are very facile with both... Even more impressive when I read that you are self taught... You're a great teacher, I'll say that..
Your gardens are lovely too. Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my blogs... I would LOVE to take Tyler to Africa to see all of those animals in their natural habitat.... It's on my list of places to go ... I actually think it's the only major area in the world that Mom and Dad didn't visit. -- I'm not sure why, but it IS on my list... may be one of those bucket list things.. :)

Be well...
