Maybe it is because we are close to my birthday and that I am turning 40 but I have been painting women, middle age women to be more specific for about a month now. Like a lot of other women my age, every year bring it part of struggling because we have to add up another year, another digit number to this eternal growing number…
Don’t get me wrong I am really happy with my life, and pretty happy to be my age (most of the time) but the time around my birthday are always the one that bring me back to earth and bring me to analyze where I am in life. Interestingly enough it also bring me to take a good look at me in the mirror and ask myself: Did I get new wrinkles? Are my eye puffier? Did I got new dark spots? Lol! Nevertheless, I have to admit that I am pretty amaze by the result of my eye cream. I have been using religiously using the best rated eye cream since I’ve read Revitol Reviews in a magazine and never look back. That was love at first “try”.
Even if I am proud of my appearance this period of the year bring question and inspiration that translate into my art of course. This morning I was really inspired and I start painting without really knowing what the result would be like. After lunch, I came back to my studio to finally realize that the women I have painted was pretty much me…. Quiet disturbing… because that was the first time that I painted myself and this unconsciousness.
One of my favorite art website, the jakartaglobe was celebrating middle age fine art not long ago. This could be also another influence that translate into my painting.
