Old Man painting in progress



James parker has a site Windows to the Words and this is a painting for that site. As I was painting this I was thinking that when I was young (started oil at 15) I use to paint old folks all the time and now that I'm in my 50s I paint youth ,beautiful women and a world that is far far from dying.

No wonder you're so skilled at your craft! Been painting for 14 years!

Love older people too. So much knowledge and experience. We need to spend more time listening to them.

I know just what you mean it's rather scary painting the old. I remember at school drawing the veins on an elderly persons hands and I see them on mine now. That's Life.
This one is looking good, lots of character.
