Pro Aging (Original)

Price:

Size: 10x10 (in frame)

I think our fear of facing the topic of death feeds our distorted social concept around aging. How can we expect to accept ourselves in our various phases if we do not honor the cycle of life itself? The resistance to the aging process is especially spotlighted with women. Yes, I get it, it biologically makes sense to be attracted to a fertile woman. But fertility is only a chapter of what our story offers. How can we be obsessed with spring yet ignore all the other seasons that co-produce such radiant flowers?

"Anti-aging" hmmmmm that word combo has always sat strangely with me. Why would we spend our energy being "anti" the inevitable? No matter what products we buy with whatever new chemical is added, there is no escaping the inescapable; we are continuously one step closer to death. 
.
I cannot help but think about aging skin when I stare at a withered flower. I think how cool the withered petals are, like folded cortex's in a wise brain. 
.
Where are the wise women who will tell the full story? I'd like to believe they still exist. I'd like to believe that they are not all hiding behind plastic. I'd like to sit and listen And see in their smile a re-assurance that beauty is beyond surface deep. 
.
Men- don't be afraid to grow up by finding women who challenge you to rise. 

Women- let's not be afraid to be the wise women whose smile speaks in volumes. 

I'm leaning into my own personal fear, and by doing so I'm embracing a new way of seeing life. Honestly, this flower was the symbol I needed to help me express this. She is my muse; as each petal dropped I thought, "you're as beautiful as ever". 

I dedicate this humble art piece from my new #FemArt series to my grandma and all women who walk in her footsteps in the cycle of life.

This Website Supports Augmented Reality to Live Preview Art

This means you can use the camera on your phone or tablet and superimpose any piece of art onto a wall inside of your home or business.

To use this feature, Just look for the "Live Preview AR" button when viewing any piece of art on this website!

For proper scaling, stand 10 feet away from the wall.
You can also drag the image to your desired location.

It looks like your camera paused.

That's ok. All you need to do is refresh the page to get it working again.

The Live Preview feature requires a modern browser that supports the ability to launch a camera from within a browser. If you believe that your device supports that functionality, you may just need to reload this page to let the browser try to activate your camera again.

The ability to activate your camera in a browser is currently supported by Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera, in both their desktop and Android versions. It is supported by Apple's Safari browser, version 11 and higher. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has yet to add support for this functionality.

If you cannot get this working, we recommend emailing a link to a compatible device or just use the
Wall Preview Tool >>
