As I grow older...

...I find it increasingly difficult to see a reasonable recent photo of myself. After all, there is considerably less attractive material to work with as the years go by.

Here, however, are a couple of not bad ones at the opening of the most recent Rimbun Dahan Art Exhibition last weekend, taken by Bilqis Hijjas.Above: Self with the organiser of the residency, Angela Hijjas
And with another fellow Australian, Pam Bakhtiar.

I fell in love with the botanical work of one of the artists, Lauren Black. Take a look at the links above...
I wish I had the money to buy a couple. But alas, they are about the same price as I get in advance for a trilogy.

Nice pictures, both of you and by Lauren Black. I know what you mean, getting a decent pic of oneself these days is pretty difficult. At least you are nice and slim Glenda, wish I could say the same for myself.

Me too, Jo:-) It must have been a lovely evening, Glenda. You look elegant, chic and happy!

Glenda Larke said...

Ah, it's just a flattering angle. Nothing slim, chic or elegant about me...

Satima Flavell said...

The happy's the important bit, anyway:-)

laughing at what you say about the material to work with as i feel that all the time!

you look lovely though in these photos

you have a great characterful face and a big smile, and i've always said that intelligence is the best thing a woman can put on her face

I like the bit about the best thing to put on one's face, but the way my memory plays up these days, I may not have much intelligence left to put anywhere soon! *g*
