Was I ever 15?
Andrice Arp sent me this compilation of photos she took as a budding young artist, when we were about 15 or 16. I can't believe we were ever that young? I still feel like I'm about 15 on the inside. Come to think of it I still act like I'm that age! Check out the seriously theatrical make-up! And those gloves! A skull? HA! Seeing these photos brought back so many memories. I can even smell her house when I look at them. The time we spent lounging around being bored. Can you imagine being bored now. I wish I had the time to be "bored". Her mother owned this big house in Malibu and was an artist. I don't even think I comprehended what an artist was at the time. They knew so many interesting people and were so generous and kind. They let us have our ideas and encouraged us. Thank you, Andrice.
