OK, so I just got tagged, let me see if I can get this right!

Thanks for Nicola for the tag - though I have to admit it has put me in a bit of a tailspin.

Here are the rules:
Link to the person who tagged you.
Post the rules on your blog.
Share six (6) non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.

Tag at least 3 people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Six Things About Me:

1 While this blog is all about my painting and crafts with the boys, my big passion is gardening (and cooking) (growyourownfood.blogspot.com)

2 Apart from cooking, I hate housework.

3 I love going to the lake with my 2 boys, and watching them throw rocks into the water. Earlier in the week we found crab apples , and rolled them down the hill. Free games are the best.

4 I find driving long distances great for working out creative problems.

5 I love to be productive - whether it's growing veg, baking bread, making chutney - I'm happier if it's large quantities.

6 I love creating order out of chaos.

The people that I would like to tag are Kiersten , Shannon, Peggy, Deborah,Eight Square Meters. I hope that you all accept the challenge, you're it!

Finished this one this week - another from the book of photos of Ireland taken from the sky. Somewhere in Donegal - this is a small on 12x12 inches. Very satisfying to paint, though...

Field of Rape

This was a picture on a calendar of one of my colleagues (thanks Treasa). It was really tough to do, I might try it again with a black underlay, and sponging the yellow on top. Happy enough with the end result...it's a big one 24 x 28 inches approx
