Ode to aging necks



This painting is an ode and exploration of aging. It is a celebration of reality of the beauty we all have, no matter what we see in the mirror.

Stephanie- I would vaccuum suck it out [my neck] if I could LOL.

Barbara- she is back to her normal self- or at least normal for a 40 year old equine. We now tbelieve she had a seizure, which makes more sense to me too. More teeth floating and a reassessment in next couple weeks.

i really don't think about how old i am, how old i feel, until i look in the mirror and see my sterling hair and the loose wrinkles of my neck. and then i panic. how old am i....?? how long will i live....?? so it's best to just wake each day, enjoy a cup of tea, and go about the activities of daily living without looking in the mirror. it only tells me i'm getting old, when i want to remain ageless....
[besides....it doesn't matter to my animals, how old i am!]

LOVE YOU.

it sounded very similar to what happened to my dog this past winter.
I'm glad to hear she's feeling better. My little Roxy is too
As for necks: I prefer to avoid mirrors. As long as I have energy to do what I want, then that's just fine.

Fox- I feel that way about getting my photo taken now. I used to work for photog. and they always told me 'it's the light, it is not really you'...so I hag on to that thought. I remember Neil Young saying, "I may look old, but I don't feel old."
