It is not the growing old that is the problem it is the side effects/affects. Aging is NOT for the faint of heart for sure.

hiya...its lovely that you see those things....

@talulah888 ...I was also thinking.. a should-be justice on our Supreme Court smile001.gif

Also, somewhat of an artist myself, I’ve a facebook friend always posting her latest paintings.. My thoughts are ..she’s a ways to go. Looking over your piece above felt great, in comparison, you’re there.

Beautiful, captures your strength and softness all at the same time. Do you paint portraits of others? I would commission one if you do.?

Not sure how it is being used here but might mean someone who identifies with their biological gender?

Beats the shit out of the alternative, though.

Love the portrait and you're right aging is not for sissies. It both challenges and surprises me at every turn.

i am fascinated by the aging process, how due to cell degeneration for example it takes 3 weeks for bruises to heal when it used to take days smile001.gif but i still feel 25 and it is a source of wonder to me that my sons are in their 30's ... but i'm still 25 i tell myself! smile001.gif Beautiful portrait by the by smile001.gif

I just wanted to echo what others said. You're very talented. This is a beautiful portrait. It must have taken quite a bit to study yourself. Thank you for sharing that with us.
