Myrna Wacknov - Reflections on Turning 65

Watercolor painting by Myrna Wacknov from the California Watercolor Association.
The Pat Berge Award - $1000

Artist Statement: I painted this in my 64th year. Turning 65 meant I would be officially old on my next birthday. Contemplating the end is nearer than the beginning seems to be universal. What started out as an exercise for my portrait class turned into my most celebrated piece of art.
