Help!! I'm Shrinking!...or...The Incredible Shrinking Artist.
Last summer I posted a solution for us aging baby boomers. All ya gotta do is TAKE OFF a year when your birthday comes around! In Feb. of '09, instead of being 62 yrs. of old age, I'll be 61 yrs. of age and getting younger! It's kinda of the Dorian Grey effect. I'm finding, however, that unlike Dorian, I'm not getting more grotesque in visage but am shrinking in stature! And this after only one yr. of subtraction! Lord knows how tall I'll be ten yrs. from now (age 51 and getting younger and smaller). Will I even be able to get onto my painting stool?! Anyway, here I am standing by a 36"X46" acrylic painting on stretched canvas I did last year. You can plainly see that I have shrunk substantially!
