How true Larry,
My ex was an extravert, always on the go ,making plans to be with other
go some where or plan something away from home.
I was content to be in and around my home, decorating,gardening,listening to
music, drawing . painting, making gifts...etc.
I socialize well, and enjoy people, but I don't go looking for company and
really prefer to spend a quiet quiet company....or alone.
Drawing with colored pencils and painting are restorative activities for me
I love to research and compose new ideas and work.
Teaching ( grades 2-12)takes most of my time now,and I also find a few moments
for my work. Students need the inspiration of seeing what art looks like
beyond the class assignment. They need to see how we, as artist's, are
inspired, how we compose and select our ideas, and the stages of development
that lead to a finished piece. They experience that in their own work, but in
class assignments,
we as teacher's "lead" them through it. As they mature they own that process
themselves, but even I benefit from watching and apprenticing under someone
It's a beautiful dance and I enjoy every moment of it. Even with all the
stress and the *rap. I'm the choreographer of every step.
