Part of the beauty and joy of the internet is the opportunity for interconnectedness with folk that you may never have met in real life. Bountiful inspiration, instruction, support, and more.

There's a meme that's been floating around the art blogs as of late, a blogger's game of tag. Hopefully good for exposure to new sets of eyes for all.

I got tagged by Karen Appleton (thanks Karen!)

Here are the rules (poached from Carol Marine): 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.

1. When I was a kid, we lived in a tent, for like a month. The campground is now a casino.
2. I sneeze like a cartoon duck. Because of this, I was once asked during a final exam to relocate my desk outside of the classroom. (I had allergies)
3. I am a night person. Not a morning person.
4. I was a Boy Scout. And a Cub.
5. I am overly fond of singing cowboy music, and sing it at the top of my lungs.

I'm taking a chance and tagging the following five folk-- I have no idea if any of them will play along-- but you ought to see their stuff anyway...

1. Charley Parker (Lines and Colors)
Mr. Parker has been bringing interesting artists to light for awhile now, offering insightful reviews. He has great advice for artists on how they should approach getting their art on the web, and is a prolific artist himself.

2. Paul Hutchinson
New Zealand artist with radiant paint handling skills.

3. Leslie Sealey
A mix between the mundane* and fantastical pieces that is fascinating to pour over.
*(Mundane as in "of, relating to, or characteristic of the world" Not to be confused with 'boring' Sealey's mundane work is fantastic.)

4. James Martin
Part of what is a vibrant community of artists who work in digital media-- film and video games mostly, who also use traditional media.

5. Margaret Dyer
A Master pasetelist, she started blogging recently AND posting small work to ebay.

Thanks for tagging me Jason. After seeing your own work I am honoured! Apart from painting we also have some other things in common - I'm alos a "night owl", I was a cub scout mayn years ago and I also enjoy singing nonsense songs (and sometimes cowboy songs..) at the top of my lungs..!

I wonder how many of those things are symptoms of the same disease...

Thanks for stopping by Paul!
