Usually I don't do tag posts or awards, as you may have noticed.
But this one was relating to art and my personal feelings, so I'm having a go!
– Your most beautiful post
– Your most popular post
– Your most controversial post

– A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
– The post that you are most proud of
My most beautiful post is also the one I am most proud of.
In Immolatum I see the beauty of the sacrifice that Jesus made for me. His face, though in pain, is beautiful to me.
I am most proud of it, because I wanted to paint Him since first I put brush to paper, some 14 years ago. Only with this post, did I feel ready. Its an achievement and a milestone for me.
My most popular post is the one where I talked of The Great Scheme of Things and Artistic Ambition
How we progress as artists and yet keep our feet on the ground. And my own artistic ambition. Not letters after my name, nor prize winning paintings... you'll have to read it to see what!
Most controversial is tricky. I don't aim to be controversial. I paint with love and feeling.
Perhaps I shall give the title of this to The Diamond Roxy
Not because of any great controversy, but from the comments. Some of my arty friends showed how I could possibly improve and the owner of the dog leapt to the painting's defense saying she wouldn't change a thing. That's about as controversial as I get :)
My most helpful post
was a recent one, Its All About Art . I had been to an art event in London and one of the artists there that I was talking to had free online lessons. I posted the link so that all my blogging friends who may not have access to classes could get some tuition online.
a post who success surprised me was Jellyfish: Black and White
Its had more views in the last month than it had when I posted it!
a post that didn't get the attention it deserved has to be one from when I first started blogging and I only had a few followers.
Inspiration.. how Sowing the Seeds came to be
The original posts that Sandra and Prabal tagged me in were posted last week when we were in the throes of the first week of the kitchen rebuild. I'm late, so I'm not tagging anyone. If you haven't participated and you'd like to look back over your own blog, please do copy the questions and post on your own blog. Kind regards, Pat xx
