My self-summary
...not looking for an 'ideal man' (for that is the best recipe for the perpetual loneliness), or my 'perfect match', for an idea of perfection or 'goodness embodied by beauty', or beauty as an outward signal of inner goodness belongs only to art/works of art. There, on canvasses, beautiful is synonymous with heroism, nobility and goodness.... The real world is, alas not the world of art, thus I am looking for an interesting human being.
I am, Alisa, an Art Teacher and an Artist. Well educated and with many interests, but not a snob. Charming, cheerful, optimistic and positive. Love life (with it's intense joys and downfalls, with beauty and ugliness, with happiness and sadness). Very interested in people, politics, history, music, nature and the world around me. Prefer a conversation instead of endless online messages. Love to sing and believe that music, art and dance is just as expressive language (if not much more) than spoken or written word. Play piano and mandolin. Looking forward to playin Hungarian Czardases and Italian songs as a guitar/mandolin duet.
What I’m doing with my life
For the public eye: being a good person, employee and a good citizen. For myself: trying to figure out the true meaning of life; getting friendly with demons and angels inside me; figuring out what love is; accepting my path of life (being a Classical-Symbolist-Baroquish artist) and all that comes with it.
I’m really good at
People. As an teacher, I work with people of various ages and by now can figure out anyone/character in a matter of minutes. In my personal life, I am good at: drawing and painting human figure, music, philosophical conversations, being a great friend and much, much more
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Historical Fiction; Religion/Philosophy; Biographies; Poetry (the one that rhymes) and much more

Music: most of Russian and Italian music up to the 19-th century; Middle Eastern music, Turkish songs and dance music...and much more

Movies: I love movies where there is a beautiful hero, a crafty villain, a philosophical sub-context, lots of beauty and risk, lots of dramatic moments and really heart wrenching losses and mind blowing happiness. By nature I am a personality of extremes and love to watch similar characters in the movies.

Food: I love spicy foods and red meat. Also love all kinds of Turkish sweets and of course Russian ethnic food. But about all, I love the food that I prepare with my own hands, for such food carries the positive spirit and a special aura that brings health.
The six things I could never do without
Hope, optimism, strength of character, love or a feeling of anticipation of falling in love; creativity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to transform various types of energy to create various moods and effects in painting.
On a typical Friday night I am
After work...can be anywhere ;-) except for hell, of course
