Spot a new cat painting, also I turned 50. Oh the horror?
Spot Oil on wood, 8" x 6," SOLD
Last week I turned 50. (Gulp.) ...while I wouldn't call my current state of affairs a mid life crisis, it is a mid life stop, pause and wonder What-the-H??! I thought I'd have children by now. Also by now, I'd spend my time travelling the world, throwing fabulous dinner parties and swimming with dolphins. Marc Maron did an interesting interview with Judd Apatow last week. They talked about how parenthood is not unlike experiencing "seasons." The parenthood ship has sailed for me but I love the comparison. Parents watch their children move through phases and they know in no uncertain terms, time is passing. I remember what a revelation moving back home to Ohio was (after almost 20 years in L.A.) Time indeed started to FLY with the four seasons spring, summer, fall and winter as daily reminders. It still is, though it seems entirely impossible that I am 50. It's taking a minute to process.
