Yep! Today is my birthday and I thank God for another day! I turn 46 which is hard to believe because I kid you not, yesterday I was 28. This morning I woke up with the usual aches and pains with an Achilles that was a-killing me, and some little muscle ache in my arm that mysteriously arose from playing volleyball. It’s all good because it tells me I’m alive, and that I’m old.
This day also marks my jumping off point to get my behind in gear as I’ve not done a single final work this year. So I entered this self-portrait in an upcoming group show at Twenty-Two, on Saturday, May 9.
I haven’t done a self-portrait since I was in college and it wasn’t even really a self-portrait. So here it is! If someone buys it, well that would just make for an awesome birthday present for me.
