And Speaking of Old People!!

This woman rocks. I love her art. I love her no-fear approach to drawing. I love the fact that she was prolific later in life. And I love the fact that she's from Kansas.

Grandma Layton had this to say about this piece: "What I had in mind was...all of these emotions you have through your life. There are muscles in your face and each one reacts to every emotion. Say you're real happy for a minute, and you put on that mask and that's going to make an indention in these muscles to a certain extent. I think it's the varous emotions you have had that causes the lines and wrinkles in your face." -Masks, March 1978.
