Under my high school graduation picture in the 1952 year book, some mysterious editor wrote, "Artists are always young" At 17 years old, I didn't understand it. Now, I do. We are never finished; even though I boldly proclaim, several times a years, "I am through painting forever and forever." That is until I am driven to create a new series, thinking I must make the best art possible to leave in the world after I am gone.
Here is quote from May 20, 2913 issue of Art News titled
You Become Better With Age. http://www.artnews.com/2013/05/20/making-art-after-8/
Artists who are going strong at 80 and up find that old age offers freedom, self-assurance, and room to explore .
I finished the series Reverie yesterday. There are 12 paintings. all are 80cm x 100 cm on board and are available for purchase.http:www.ezshwan.com
I will take my usual break to work online and get ready for a gallery opening Oct first. I am sure there will be more paintings. In the back of my mind I am picturing some smaller cold wax abstracts, but who knows? I have loved figurative painting since I was a child.
