I love to sculpt any face really but there is something very special about older faces. I agree with you and really think that the life lines give character to the pieces, just like in real life. I find it funny how many of us try to hide our age and use all kinds of products to get rid of lines and wrinkles, when I personally think that those are the very things that we should strive to keep. I love to look at someone's face, esp. the elderly and study their laugh lines and their overall wrinkles. Their faces tell a story to me.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write. I so appreciate comments on my work. Hugs.
Getting older means living, doesn't it? That is our nature. What's the use of fighting it? People are more than a face and you're right, wrinkles tell stories. I am getting the first grey hairs now, and they don't bother me, because I feel fresh and full of life, oh yes!
