  3. Isn't it strange...how we tend to think of beauty mainly in terms of youth...yet...here we see true ageless beauty!
    Both young and not-so-young are dancing the same dance here...in the sheer grace and beauty that being happy in one's own skin brings.
    I believe that if this wonderful sketch could speak to me, it would be saying "Aging is no more than a state of mind...so dance...with all your heart and Soul!" ;)

    1. I have mixed feeling having sketched young and older models in these dance like poses. No matter how wonderful both old and young models pose it has to be so much harder for the older models. I know what you are saying about aging is no more than a state of mind… Wouldn’t it be wonderful if that were true..
      Thank you
