"Face of old age"

We're all getting older and the question in my mind is "How old do I want to get?"
I looked up famous people who had celebrated thei 100th birthday and was amazed that these people had lived so long. 
I also tried to tell the story of growing older and losing a partner, and what that must feel like as well as capture the memories that one must have after 100 years of living.

I painted these tulips directly onto the gelatine and then pulled a print.

By using the left over paint from a previous print and painting on top of it, I was able to have a very creative background.
