By day, we’re marketing geeks. Computer nerds. Quirky writers and artists. And damn proud of it!

But after hours, our team members shed their marketing capes – and pursue all kinds of cool Hobbies, Interests and Talents (we call them HITs for short).

Here’s what Jari Searns, Co-Founder of Haley Marketing, is into:

HIT: Oil Painter

Back Story

Like my husband, Rick, I too have been a serial entrepreneur for many years. But I also have a second love – oil painting. It’s a partially inherited talent I developed in college and a hobby that I dearly love. And now that I am retired, it’s one I plan to pursue a whole lot more. I still love business and Haley Marketing, but painting has opened a whole new world to me that I can’t wait to explore further.

What do I love most about painting?

The ability to reproduce a subject on canvas is so rewarding; the process helps me appreciate life and nature more deeply. I just finished this 4′ x 8′ painting (pictured above) of a swan done all in black and white for our new living room and I love it!

I also give away many of my paintings. The recipients really seem to appreciate them and that makes me feel terrific!

Ask and ye shall receive – times six…

My niece sent me six photographs of places she and her new fiancée had visited. She asked me to select one and paint it as a wedding gift…I painted all six for them!
