"My all-time favorite pastime is painting. I am an artist, and painting is my passion. I have been painting since I was a teenager. I studied painting in college. Currently, I am working on a series of 20 abstract paintings inspired by some of the cities around the world I have visited in the last few years. Sometimes it is hard to find time to paint because I work at a bank during the week and go to the beach on the weekends, but I do find a few days now and then to let my creativity run wild. So far I have finished 5 paintings in this new series. Just 15 more paintings to go. I imagine doing that would take me another year to finish. Some day I will have an art show at a gallery to exhibit my paintings. That is one of my dreams."
