Postings of my oil painting done on a daily basis...and occasional commentary of what's on my mind...

On Friday of this week, I turn 50 years old!. I don't feel "50".. not even sure what that is supposed to feel like. Most days I don't think about it, and when I do, I feel like the same awkward, outsider girl I was in high school and I certainly don't feel like a "grown up" even though I have lived this long and have raised children to adulthood. So to record this milestone in my life, I painted a self portrait. I wanted it to be a little naked and raw. No makeup, no hair style, no jewelry, with the scars and wrinkles I've earned along the way. Just me, reflecting on getting to this point in my life.
