My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have more interests than a politician has fleas--from movies to art to antiquing to taking great walks in nature. But my biggest interest is creating art. I do it professionally and personally.

I'm a romanticist who doesn't really have the time or interest in pursuing multiple women just for quick, cheap thrills. A compatible connection is harder to find than most people realize. I'm looking to meet someone who's as excited to see my name pop up on their smart phone as I hope to be when I see theirs. I'm not cool, casual and aloof. I'm warm, fun and cozy. I'm also a lunatic for kissing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I'm not slaving away at the drawing board over some new assignment I'm in the back room pursuing my true passion--oil painting. I also get a kick from turning my back yard into a seriously nifty garden. Flowers inspire the hell out of my work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Gardening, conversing, painting, drawing, kissing, making people giggle, eating sushi, making cats purr and discussing the movie we've just seen.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told my smile and eyes aren't too repulsive. :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite movies: Waaaay too many. From "Grapes of Wrath" to "A Clockwork Orange" to "The Artist"--and so much more in-between.

Favorite TV Shows: Columbo, Game of Thrones, Seinfeld, House of Cards. But, believe it or not, I don't watch much TV.

Favorite Books: "Catch 22", "Under The Skin", "Crackpot", "Breakfast of Champions", etc...

Favorite music: The Clash, early ska, Parliament/Funkadelic, Nina Simone, Led Zeppelin. etc...

Favorite foods: Sushi, Mexican food, salad (with blue cheese dressing), Key-lime pie. Not much I DON'T like. Finnicky eater is not one of my descriptors.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A cat in my life, long walks, creating art, music, movies, laughing, kissing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Learning how to dance really good. Or just good.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking a nice dinner and watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a small but fun collection of vintage toys. :)
