"Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art."
I will tell you a secret. I usually think it's too mushy to say, but today it's appropriate. How I became a model.
What inspires you? For me, it is old ladies with so many stories they gush...and you want to sit there and stay. Yes, an old lady saying, "That is me," referring to herself in a painting inspired me to model. I've never met her, but her pride made the TV glow. I love women who can hold themselves up in a dignified way. They know who they are and are determined to be just that.
I model for ladies...and men, but usually women are the painters. This is my own experience and not a generalization. Seriously, if you want advise on marriage ask these women. It's nice. Advise, kindness, it's all there at open-studio sessions. I hope I am as beautiful as them in my old age.
