Hello, my name is Mark Benton. I am a painter in every sense of the word. I also dabble in sculpture, printmaking, and writing. I live in the great state of Vermont, and I love it here, but I am long over-due in following my life-long dream of seeing the world. I am a bit of a late bloomer as far as travelling goes, and I would be lying if I said that there wasn't a degree of fear involved in why I have not even left North America yet at the ripe
age of 44. It is personally embarrassing for me. I was that kid that was going to visit every country in the world. I don't know where the time has gone, but I have finally resigned myself to do something about this problem... no more sitting around, saying "If only...". Afterall, It was T. S. Elliot who said, "Adventure is for old men." I may not be that old, but as Ian Anderson also said, " You're never too old to Rock 'n Roll if you're too young to die."
