It’s hard to write about me.. So i’m going to tell you the things I like 🙂 and liked.
Art is a window. The viewer gets to see something that i could talk your ear off, but don’t. instead you get a quiet moment to judge me, to like or dislike, but at least be honest.
Why painting? I guess it starts with drawing. I’ve always loved to draw since i was a kid. But I think i should say I love learning and drawing and painting was part of the things that interested me and brought me satisfaction of achieving something. I was able to see the Group of Seven in Vancouver art gallery and it changed my perspective of art. How i would love to have something like that in my living room!!! Well there is no turning back. I love my house full of paintings.
I helped may people build things over the years. to the extent i could build my own home as the carpenter. yes it was a grand feeling knowing i did it. Put in my own forms, stand the walls, set the trusses, install the windows and doors, install the kitchen counters and the trim! I was worth all the sore muscles and time.
Then moved to finer projects.
I know you will see more of these items in the future.
What does it take to stay married? It’s not a easy thing to do. I would say a few words, balance, humility and not fighting back. Yes we have 2 children and 2 grandchildren. Our grand child Matthew just graded in 2017. Daphne has just a few years to go. I love my Donna. My wife loves gardening and crafts.
Computer and Inventory.
I’ve work in the same place for 40 years. Yup my entire working career in one place. I did move around in the company, work in the woodyard, machine room and stores on the floor. I became the catalogue analysis and look after 100,000+ skew codes for 5 years. then became a Supervisor of stores, which contains $21 million in parts, with a staff of 8. where i am still today. I love everything i do.
Learning is the key and liking it, makes life even more fun. I’m not a educated man and i think that alone pushed me to learn everything i could. If we could live longer the things i would love to do and the places i would love to see.
a fellow human.. perry
And then there was all the hard work.. Yes we planted all these from seed. plus built the greenhouses, cut the lawn, tilled the dirt and work 40hrs a week in a mill.
