Grrl + Dog asks ... why no funding for older, artist wannabes = I wanna know too ...

The very beautiful, talented, wise, pajama clad, Grrl ...
posted on a topic close to my heart.


Now I'm on the way to three score years and ten ...
invisibility is more apparent.

As I ponder Grrl's observations ...
 plus my own invisibility experiences ...
 my exhibiton photo's ...
remind me ...
I'm the oldest person I know!

Maybe the boost to my creative confidence has emerged ...
as a signal for me to wave the banner ...
to pose the question ...
to knock on doors ...
and ask ...
as Grrl does ... 

          isn't it time that more beautiful, talented, wise, older artists ...
are given the same opportunities ...
as those young-uns?

The same opportunities we never had ...
as our parents were tsk, ts, tsking ...
at the prospect of us wasting our lives on "ART" ...
while we waited to grow up ...
to emerge!

Love to hear what you think!

Oh Lyndel what alarms me is that the gorgeous, talented Grrl is more than 20 years younger than me and has uncovered this "discrimination" ... as some might call it! People power is needed ASAP!
Thank YOU so much for commenting. xo.
