Aging Artist Holds Her Own

Aging artist looks forward to moving forward and setting new goals. I’m going through changes in my life that effect the way I see and do things. My energy levels have not been the same since the pandemic.

Aging artist says getting old isn’t for sissies

I deal with Covid-19 brain and for me it means, my focus is not the same, because right in the middle of something I need to regroup. Sometimes it’s hard to remember things I have done for my whole life.

Genetics a blessing and a curse because with all my great qualities, I deal with stenosis and injuries from passed car accidents. I adapt day by day. The things I might be doing today may be impossible tomorrow.

Getting old isn’t for sissies is what our 94 year old Uncle Bill would say when he heard anyone complaining about life.

New challenges for aging artist

As an aging artist I can deal with my challenges in a positive light and change things to support what I can to do what I love.

I can complain about the pain or dwell in the fact that I’m just not 21 years old, but that doesn’t serve anyone. So looking for solutions I thought I would share what I find helps me and maybe it will help you too.

Dealing with brain fog I am finding that nutrition and rest works best,

Aches and pains is different to each individual, because we’re all different. This helps me and helps with my brain fog too. I exercise to help support my spine, do acupuncture, take supplements for joint and bone health and when I have really bad days I rest. Rest maybe watching a movie all the while sitting on a heating pad.

As an aging artist my work is not being seen as much because my shows are limited. I still have working hanging in offices but for how much longer is a concern now that I am older.

My art comes from being a positive person

The possibilities of working through my issues keeps me going. My work is a gift and I want to share it. Acrylic painting is one thing that I love so I have to shorten my work time in front of the easel.

I draw more because it don’t sand to draw. The best thing is I now create pieces that are more meaningful. Sharing my work
