Blogger tag??

Allright, allright, I’m playing along. I’ve been “tagged” by another daily painter, Brendy Vaughn. I guess the way this works is kind of like “true confessions.” I tell 5 things about myself and tag 5 other artists to do the same.

I don’t usually respond to these “pass it along” internet games, but this one gives us all the opportunity to introduce and highlight the work of other artist-bloggers we appreciate. And of course it allows me to share some little-known stuff about myself.

Here are the rules: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog. 2. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. 3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. 4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So, here goes with that little-known stuff about me...

1. I was raised by wild dogs. Later in life I began taking in and caring for wild dogs. It just came natural to me.

2. I train and race porcupines.

3. I’m both green and high-tech. I grind my own pigments from recycled computer parts.

4. Pthalo blue works well for stains on carpet.

5. I’ve learned that, over time, paint fumes offer alternate views of reality.

Here are the 5 artists I’m tagging, check them out:
Otto Lange, Triecia Gibney, Sharman Owings, John Beder and Joan da Gradi.

I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Wild dogs huh? They must be the ones who taught you to hide a dog stain with pthalo blue.

When I got tagged I thought of tagging you but didn't think you'd be into it. Brendy had more courage than me. I can't wait to check out the artists you tagged.

Silvina, I applaud you! It was difficult for me to reveal such personal things, but it was nothing compared to your bravery in posting that photo of yourself on your blog:

You've shown the world that accidents of birth, such as large red round noses, are nothing to be ashamed of...bravo!

It was pure ego really. I figured if I revealed what I really look like, then people would realize what astounding talent, skill and imagination it took to paint the self portrait! : D
