My self-summary
I would say I am laid back, but focused. I have had a contemporary art gallery for over 25 years and was a painter/Univ. prof. teaching painting/drawing before that, so art is important in one form or another. Also music- worked for bands( Grateful Dead, others) and played in bands for years. Still play guitar. Basically a strong connection to all the arts, love opera, dance, theater. Gallery is downtown in NYC on the LES. And family is important- I have 3 grown children that live away. Also always important- kindness. compassion, humor. Politically liberal. Enjoy the country as much as the city. I'm looking for a woman that is happy with who they are, where they are at and has the energy to try new things and places. Like most people I see on here I love people with a sense of humor. I enjoy laughing at myself and most situations. Often go to MOMA, New Museum , The Whitney to see films and exhibits. Would like to find a partner that is curious, brave, optimistic and honest.

I go upstate NY to Narrowsburg often - small town along the Delaware River, where I have a farmhouse I am fixing up. Really beautiful and relaxing. Also my 7 yr old Aussie " Yoshi" is very happy there and has set out to befriend the local deer. Go to Europe often-Ireland (My Sligo house) and France(have a derelict house there also) and of course other spots. Like growing orchids. Love books both as objects and to read or look at. My grandfather had a bookstore in the Bronx.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, trying to make a small difference locally, globally. Trying to develop more skills in the kindness and compassion department. Working on small personal goals also- giving away more things, playing better guitar, gardening more, simplifying, taking more courses exploring things I am curious about, longer walks, learn French.
I’m really good at
I enjoy cooking, gardening, playing guitar, reading, growing orchids, writing and I think I am pretty good at these activities. I like story telling and enjoy The Moth Radio Hour. Finding and supporting developing artists is a constant education and re-evaluation of my established ideas regarding my world.
