A friend asked me to combine two of my paintings into one. Two ladies standing beside each other on the beach, two who could actually be the same person. Back "then" (the lady on the left) might have had a little firmer body, maybe more height and darker hair. Today (now, on the right) she might look a little different but we she is still the same in many ways. Hopefully more wise, more patient and has a better understanding of what life is all about. There is nothing more peaceful than standing beside the ocean at whatever age.
