Great question, Jill! And so far, it looks like our age range is in front. I will be 53 on 12-26. :) Carol Korros, I'm with you on the retirement...I can't wait, either. I'm working on an early one.

That is an interesting chart you have going Jill....I am glad the Good Lord lets me think I am younger then I am...
Haven't really thought much about being old at 75 -most of the time-:))
Didn't learn about china painting till I was 55...Truly been a wonderful experience ever since.
I am still painting and teaching some wonderful talented students...Lucky me...

Just got off the phone with my oldest- 91yr old student-- she has been painting with me for 10 yrs.
Also have several 80-85 yr old students that have been painting with me for 20yrs...Spry as spring chickens..
Finished with teaching classes now till after the first of the year...
Giving my brain a rest and then will put toghether some new painting projects for next year..Lord Willing.
Have a great painting experience next year everyone. No matter your age.. Paint what makes YOU Happy..Lv, PennyN Indy
