As you know, we females always tried to obey our parents as children, as good students in grade school, high school and college, as caring daughters. We continued to take care of husbands and children during the following decades. And now as grandmothers, we extend our time to help with grandchildren and their families. There was much joy and disappointments in these decades of our lives. Now we are in our sixth decade, we have measured time left.
We are free to do what we want, so why not drink wine every night if we want to? 37% of women over 60 are either binge drinkers or drink multiple glasses of wine each night. And I say “Why Not?” My painting is the measured time of a mature woman who is now free to enjoy wine every night, if she wants, without the responsibilities for others.
