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.

but we are still here

@talulah888 and life is still good.


it a little corage to post that so thanks do much for all your encouraging comments....

talulah888 Level 5 Mar 5, 2019

I need to paint a new one since i got my hair cut off. Thanks for the inspiration

you should...its quite therapeutic


Who is that old woman in the mirror, oh no it's me. How and when did this happen?

Jolanta Level 8 Mar 5, 2019

No it isn't and thank you,I needed the reminder. I love the portrait. You look great by the way. 😁✌️

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.


Quite talented! Beautifully done.

Absolutely marvellous portrait, I love the tones


No kidding. But more importantly, the portrait is wonderful. I love it.

whispers Level 7 Mar 5, 2019

it was a challenge studying myself for the painting......these days a glance in the mirrors quite enough...thankyou for you lovely comment

@talulah888 I'm an artist and haven't been brave enough to try this yet. Thank YOU for the inspiration.


Thats beautiful, such talent. You have such a lovely face.

Amisja Level 8 Mar 4, 2019

thankyou for the lovely comment


Beautiful! No, it's not for sissies but damn it's a great freedom!

mzbehavin Level 7 Mar 4, 2019

I have a sketch of me but it's a nude and wouldn't want to scare anyone. lol smile002.gif


youre right it is...and you can wear what you want...no apologies


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?

@ToolGuy I think she meant sissy...

@Kattywampus69 [g.co]

@ToolGuy I'm very aware of what Cis is, but I don't think that's what the lady meant.


Wtf is a "cissie"?

Cool painting though.

Gooniesnvrdie Level 7 Mar 5, 2019

I think she meant sissy...

@Kattywampus69 Ah, ok


Thats lovely.

Lennie Level 7 Mar 5, 2019

You are truely talented! I love the different shades and tones. Really brings out your facial features.

johnmondin81 Level 2 Mar 5, 2019

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.

SLBushway Level 6 Mar 5, 2019

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.

Mofferatu Level 7 Mar 6, 2019

You're doing it well.

Tompain1 Level 6 Mar 5, 2019

This is a beautiful, strong portrait; well done!
