The 'My 7 Links Project'...

The My 7 Links Project was generated by TripBase to "unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavour to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again." Bloggers list their Top 7 Links in the following categories...

– Your most beautiful post
– Your most popular post
– Your most controversial post
– Your most helpful post
– A post whose success surprised you
– A post you feel didn’t get the attention it deserved
– The post that you are most proud of
...and then Bloggers tag others and so it goes on.

I was tagged for this project by Sue Pownall from Art of a Nomad

Here are a selection of my past posts, some of which are fairly recent, but some of which I think deserve this trip back in time:

I chose this not so much for the painting its self, but rather for the sentiment of the beautiful memories behind it :0)

This post has received the most comments!

This post continues to catch peoples attention, not only because of the painting its self but because of the tricky subject I wrote about.

This is the only post where I have showed a step by step guide to how I reached the finished result

I was amazed at the volume of positive response I received for such a simple sketch!

But this was probably because it was only my third post and I had yet to gain any followers!

Aside from the bear which I have already listed, this is still one of my favourite paintings

    Crystal - Thank you! And thank you for taking part. I thought you would like to do it :0)

    Carrie - Thank you! Yes, I was so proud of my dog, but I don't think anyone saw it at the time! That's what's so good about this 7 link project. It gives us a chance to show some of those oldies again :0)

    Sue - No, thank you for tagging me! It was fun :0)

    Franz - Thank you very much :0)

    Suzanne - Thank you! The background of the dog was an awful lot nicer before I ruined it with fixative spray and then it went all matted and dull :0( Still, luckily I rescued the dog with a few highlights. I loved seeing your chosen selection. That was a real treat :0)

    Barbra - Thank you! And I can't wait to see your selection :0)

    Ralph - Thank you! I'm glad you like them :0)

  12. Just seen this!!! What a great idea. You have so many memorable paintings, like "Daddies Home", "Mummy, I've been" and "cupboard under the stairs" that it's been very interesting looking at which ones YOU have chosen. ;-)

  13. John - Thank you! I think you'll be surprised at my next! It's very... um... loose. Not sure what the reaction will be but no doubt opinion will be divided, lol! :0)

  14. Kitchen got in the way. But I'm waiting for plaster to try so will try to pick this up Sunday.

    Your paintings are fabulous. I like the variety and the execution.

    and the early days dog - smashing! xx

  15. Pat - Great!Will look forward to seeing your own choices :0)
