I’m Eighteen

Shot Of The Day: August 18, 2016





QOTD: I got a baby’s brain and an old man’s heart.
Took eighteen years to get this far.
Don’t always know what I’m talkin’ about
Feels like I’m livin’ in the middle of doubt.
— Alice Cooper

Backstory: This one is for Holly Jo who knew me when I was eighteen – and who also understands what it is to be eighteen in your head while being 58 in your knees and back. (This painting is my favourite part of a series of great murals found on the NYC Arts Cypher building). — TAG
