I'm 37, married, and have one boy, age 6 He just finished Kindergarten. He loves school and loves to "Help" Mommy sometimes when she paints. He actually draws well for his age, perhaps he will take after me... I took up painting in High School and immediately fell in love with it. I was fortunate enough to have some of my work selected to be shown in exhibits around the world. After graduation, my interests turned elsewhere and I didn't seriously paint for some time. A few years ago I rediscovered my passion for art and 2 years ago decided to try selling on Ebay. I have sold over 600 paintings on Ebay the past two years, and still love it when customers praise my work. I hope to establish a presence off Ebay to reduce my reliance upon them as a sales venue. I find that painting gives me an outlet for my creative nature, as well as allowing me to escape from the stress of my real job for awhile. When I'm not painting or keeping up with my 5 year old, I love to travel-especially to the Caribbean. Just give me warm weather and a beach and I'm happy!
