Creating things with my hands, such as crafts and painting on any surface.
Earning my graduate degree.
My passion is painting in oils on canvas. I taught painting for 15 years. Seeing that look of satisfaction and surprise on someone's face when they have finished a painting for the first time when they had never held a paintbrush before gives me a warm feeling that I can't describe. I feel like I have given them something unique that is a part of me that will grow in them and last forever. It is like teaching them to see the world through different eyes.
I'm a native recent empty nester who has been sitting on the couch way too long. I want to get back to living and sharing experiences and ideas with friendly people. I love reading, old movies, animals, and visiting friends.
