What Do I Do When Not Writing?
Above is one of the things I have done and want to get back to when I have the energy. Painting! It is an acrylic painting of a Florida Panther. In my About Page you will see that I have taken many classes in painting and for several years I was painting almost daily. It has fallen by the wayside of late but I am constantly thinking I need to get back to it.
I lose track of time and go into a zone when I am painting usually, though not all the time. I have used oils, acrylics and pastels. Would also like to do watercolors at some point. This painting has been sold and I have recently had an offer on another painting I did awhile ago, “Starry Night,” after Van Gogh.
I also am an avid reader and every day or night you will find me with my nose in a book. But I suppose most writers are readers also. My favorite subject is mysteries as I love trying to solve the mystery as I am reading. One of my favorite authors is Jeffrey Deaver and I know he is a bit strange but that’s what makes his stories so interesting. I love many and varied authors and have been going to the library for my books now although have been thinking about getting a Kindle.
On the physical side I try to walk every day but sometimes do not make it every day but most of the time. Gotta keep the blood circulating!
