The ageing process is always with us. The longer we live, the more we age. The older we get, the more we think about ageing. What was once so easy to do now becomes a real effort or is no longer on our agenda.
As artists age they (hopefully) become wiser and smarter. Our way of thinking matures and our work often reflects this.
There are days when my fingers tell me that I’ve done enough art and that I should rest. Some days I take heed of the pain and “step away from the studio”. There are times though when I “soldier on”.
I found a rock at Hervey Bay (Queensland) earlier in the year that I think some up the ageing process rather well.
Today’s featured painting will be part of my exhibition in March next year.
