Old age and death are at the heart and soul of the lives of each of us. My exploration of old age features four women artists who were highly creative in their “old age,” surrounded by the creative resources that sustained and enlivened them. The two skeleton images depict the fantasy of a realm beyond concrete everyday reality in which the spirit of great loves and/or friendships has a long afterlife. The four cycle of life paintings refer to the proximity of Death in all seasons of life, as well as to the different energies and outlooks that infuse each of them.
