A painting fool

Art therapy rocks

I started with colouring books, about 3 years ago. In fact, I wrote about how colouring was the next big thing on http://www.blogspot.optioneerjm.com and within 6 months, they were everywhere!

It has been my salvation and then evolved into a whimsical pursuit.

Noses trip me up the most and I fuss over the eyes.

A fashionista in the painting

Creation through painting allows me to explore my inner fashionista. There are surprises along the way. Especially when I recognize someone I know appearing–symbolic renderings of people I’ve known.

I see Noelle here. A member of my Toastmasters group where I spent many Monday noon luncheons honing my public speaking skills with a team of talented folks.

Noelle went on to professional sales training: her speaking finessed in our tribe of supporters, cheerleaders supporting her adventures about to unfold.

I see a bit of Craig in Millennial Mark. Craig became a member of our group, took a turn as Treasurer when I was club President. He’s now tearing up the world speaking as a networking guru.

I don’t know who will appear when I paint. I suppose there’s a little bit of everyone lingering on the top of the brushes, waiting to emerge.

Pinterest is my virtual filing cabinet.

What started as a form of stress relief has evolved into a relaxing respite from all the things crowding my restless mind.

A writer, a blogger, a seeker, a finder; discovering nuances that are unique to those born between 1960 and 1965 .... the tail end of Baby Boomers or the start of the X-Generation. A student of demographic, avid reader, curioso, vivid aesthetic eye, wannabe artist. I write about what appeals to Yuppies who are 50 plus and wanting to be the best of anything and everything! I provide insights and build camaraderie among YUPPIES of the 1980s, an impactful demographic born in the 60s, went into Junior High | Middle School in the mid 70s and graduated from High School 1979, followed by the roller coasters in the 1980s. Regardless of location, religion, gender identity, age, culture, beliefs, education or economic standing: EVERYONE is famous in their own world:: having the starring role. An expression, a reflection or opinion using the positive vibe that attracts ALL the movers & shakers of their WORLD. I encourage other and calm the waters for those considering entering the online universe, where the only boundaries are your own imagination. I do somersaults (virtually and imaginatively) whenever someone takes the time to comment ~ that's a true treasure!!
