I can barely wait to be 50! It’s one age I have always held in awe and been envious of. It’s such a landmark age and all the 50 year olds I know act like it’s a right of passage… like now they have turned fifty they basically know everything there is about life….(they wish!) I definitely want some of that self-assuredness…. carrying on as though there is something they know that I cannot be privy to. Walking taller...(or maybe they just seem taller to me…)… with this age-defined presence about them. Commanding so much respect…I just get so envious and wish I was 52 so I could burst that bubble of theirs. I still remember when my mum turned fifty…it was like the scales suddenly came off…she just seemed different. Bolder. Like nothing else mattered and it was all about what she wanted. I suppose that might be what happens when you turn 50 – nothing else matters- it’s a been there; done that moment and it’s all about you. A sense of absolutely selfish abandonment…no apologies. I suppose the big 5.0. gives some people the excuse to act all la-di-da…but it’s all good! I have every intention to act like a self assured p****k when I turn 50…(maybe I wouldn’t even need to act…maybe I’ll just be privy to the big secret and I’ll just temper my self assuredness with a teensy bit of condescension)…and smile so enigmatically that non-50 year olds would wonder what the big deal is!!

Spontaneity is the watchword that informs my art practice. My artwork celebrates the energy of abstract expressionism. 'why not?' underlines my creative process. Forget the box! Its obsolete...it's all about whatever shape you want to throw on that dance floor! The process drives my practice!! For me, work well done is work I have thoroughly enjoyed making...work that has made me think, sweat, cry, scream and come back for more!!! Work that gets my back up; pushes me...gives me cause for doubt. Makes me push in order for 'why not?' to become possible. Boundaries? What boundaries? View all posts by designwithflair
