I am an artist. I paint in acrylics, watercolors, oil pastels, and I even sculpt sometimes. I grew up on a beef ranch raising cows in the country.I enjoy being outside and picking blackberries in the summer is a must. I love to garden and I care about the bees (which are disappearing) and I feed the wild birds. I'm not afraid to get dirty although I clean up well too. Throughout my life I have learned to appreciate my family and realize that everything worth having you can't buy with money. I wouldn't want to live in the city because I love the mountains and trees and wildlife too much. I love to go on hikes and walks at the beach and one of my favorite activities is to dance. I am a very open minded person that is free spirited that likes to have fun. I am looking for something real real that will hopefully become a long term relationship. I appreciate honesty towards myself and others and I want to be a compliment to someone else s life. Please respond only if you are seeking a relationship or meaningful connection too. Also only respond if you actually are trying to date not because you are bored and want to chat online to pass the time.
