Real Hands #8

By Lucy Boland

“Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art” Eleanor Roosevelt

I, as an artist, am attracted to hands of older people. The way the skin gently drapes over bulging knuckles. The lines and calluses that tell a story of their live’s work. The swollen veins, proof of more to give. Its visual poetry. Truly beautiful. Gods gift of life. A story telling masterpiece.
