                “Painting is almost like a religious experience, which should go on and on. Age just gives you the freedom to do some things you’ve never done before. Great work can come at any stage of your life,” Will Barnet. Americans are entering new careers, regardless of age. “I am entering a rode I never dreamed,” said Matina Botoulas of Flushing, New York. “My daughters inspired me with a gift of artist supplies. I began expressing in art my impressions of my surroundings.”

                Her creativity was displayed in a recent Artist Exhibition at the Stathakion Cultural Center, 22-51 29th St., Queens, NY, 11105. “I loved drawing from a young girl in Angelona, Laconia, Greece. “I married my husband, Nick Botoulas of Tripolis, Greece. We immigrated to the U.S., raised our daughters Marilene and Georgia, while pursuing careers. At sixty-five, I began a career as an artist. I am inspired by my environment. I saw a house that reminded me of Greece. I drew it on a canvas. A Santorini magnet motivated a painting. Memories of Monemvasia led to a landscape. Her colorful paintings show influences of the Mediterranean.
