Today's painted lady portraits are from my 'real life' friend Max...having taken up art lessons recently, let me tell you that these are works of genius...it's bloody hard to get so good. In fact, it's fair to say I've chosen to practise creating 'abstract' art. (Some might say all my so-called 'art' is abstract.)
Max was the birthday girl recipient of last week's birthday essay on ubuntu & depression, and her blog piece today - about getting what you thought you needed in life - is so good that I wanted to connect you to it. It's also fab to get to the story behind the works of art, which is why I asked her if I might share these with you.
Max's post reminded me of how silly I am when I sometimes wonder whether I should have gotten out of the London rat race - there's no point comparing myself to people who have something I don't even want - fancy titles, too much time on the tube, a linear career path.
Do yourself a favor, pop on over and I'd love to hear what you think - how your 'brick walls' led to 'open doors'...
