My interests are traveling, reading, music, knitting, interacting with people and the list goes on. My greatest love though is art in the old-fashioned sense of the word: the kind one sees in museums. Oil, watercolor, and pastel are the main mediums, but I’m often up to try out something new.
An art block (like a writers block) – what is that?
I do not have enough hours in a day to accomplish all the lists I have of what I want to paint.
Came to the USA to get my doc in psychology. It has become part of my DNA and although I retired, I still love to help people manage their issues.
Art and psychology work very well together since they both focus on observation, analyzation, and interpretation. Some of why I started blogging is to write about my life and have a record of my inspiration and what was involved in painting a particular subject.
My world view and life style are influenced by the countries I have lived in: two countries in Western Europe, Asia, and the US. It’s true, I’m a city dweller. Now I live since Sept 2014 at 3000 feet I’ll have ample opportunity to paint the mountains and the vallies. In certain aspects I miss city life, since it takes an hour to go to my favorite stores, but I get so much back in return: no traffic, and nature is awesome.
My family is important. Three children spread their wings (some of the reason of our travels), but they like to know whenever hubby and I have something major going on. Suddenly we find ourselves having 7 grandchildren? We are now a tribe of FOURTEEN – not possible! Am in an identity crisis (not):)
My loves other than the branches of art: and art history:
everything having to do with nature
whatever’s made from scratch
