I'm a warm, wide-open (perhaps less than I think I am) person and a perpetual optimist--often to my detriment. Very visually-oriented and a bit distractable, I'm one of those people who get captured by the play of shadow on a wall, intertwining vines crawling up a tree, etc. Unsurprisingly, I'm mainly an artist in the non-work world and my daughter seems to have picked up on that. She draws more than I ever did at that age. Ask me for a link to a web page of my art (mainly oils and pastels) if interested. I'm also very into music (playing and listening), sometimes play too many video games with my kids, and enjoy most outdoor activities (camping, canoeing/kayaking, biking, hiking, etc.). I also tend to have serial passionate hobbies where I immerse myself in a subject until I reach at least a level of competence.
I am artistic, eclectic, and loving
