I am a retired Australian who paints as a serious hobby. Have won the odd prize and also taught a little. My travels as a diplomat have provided me with lots of inspiration. I have found painting to be one of the very best ways for a retiree to keep active, mentally and physically, and to stay engaged with people, particularly other artists. At any stage of your life painting has the wonderful bonus of keeping you observant about the world around you - the effects of light, potential painting subjects, colours, people, nature - especially for me - birds. Is there much else to ask for really? And what's more it hardly costs anything - just some simple art materials. With the wonders of the internet international marketing too is within reach of anyone. Who knows you may even sell a painting or two and make a modest profit ! CLW
