|Patience Is A Virtue|
I've been TAGGED by my loyal follower Terrie of Creative Explorer. I really love having Terrie as a follower as I value her comments. The title of her blog says it all. She is not afraid of trying new ways of expressing herself artistically. You can see by her workdesk that she is extremely creative.
Zentangled letters for the ALAW project....
Now, I've been blogging for just over a year and have been 'tagged' several times, for a 'pay it forward' sort of thing. While I have always participated I find that it can be VERY time-consuming, and not everyone's cup of tea. Sometimes I feel it smacks of the old 'chain-letter' thing.
This 'tag' requires that I answer 11 questions posed by Terrie and that I tag 11 other bloggers with questions that I have for them. I am to put links to those bloggers on my post. This seems an excellent way for my followers to see the work of people who are new to them. However, the feelings that I have about tagging might be shared by those I tag. Soooo, sorry Terrie, after some thought I'm opting out of this one.
BUT, I will answer your questions (as if anyone would care what I think)....
1. Favorite season - why?
Summer. I hate the cold, always have. When I was a child my parents took me to see snow and I wouldn't get out of the car. Nothing's changed. I'm a beach girl.
2. What do you 'need' to have on before venturing out in public?
Lippy. I look like death without it.
3. What do you collect?
My God! What sort of question is that? Like most people who dabble in the arts...I collect EVERYthing! Hubby is always amused at me picking up squashed and rusty bottletops when we go for our morning walk. You'll see them in collages from time to time.
4. Favorite style of art?
I have eclectic tastes in art so anything and everything is of interest to me, but I lean towards Abstract Expressionism.
5. Symmetrical or asymmetrical?
Depends on the mood. I do rather fancy assymetric clothing and jewellery.
6. What do you find difficult to learn or work with in your chosen medium?
What chosen medium? I move between many (as do you Terrie). At present am having some problems with 'image transfer', but I will soon be over it.
7. Vacation in cold & snow or hot & sunshine?
Guess I answered that in question #1.
8. How do you relax?
Sleep. I am on the go so much that when I stop I sleep. I used to read a lot but find it hard to get past a couple of paragraphs before I nod off.
9. What's one of your guilty pleasures?
Chocolate. I LOVE it (doesn't everyone?).... preferably Belgian.
10. What wakes up your muse? (or, where do you find your creative inspiration?)
Art books.... now THEY can keep me awake. I have a huge collection. (must blog about it one day).
11. What food do you crave most often?
Apart from chocolate? .... Asian food, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese. I cook these a lot.
.... and that's it folks.
During the course of my blogging I provide links to other bloggers from time to time so wont be 'paying this forward' at the moment.
Sorry Terrie... but thanks for your endorsement of my blog.
