This poor economy makes me feel like I’m taller. I look at the products I buy in their smaller packaging and feel bigger and taller.
The painting below is based on a photo I was given of a man John worked for. This man is standing in front of a statue of an important man. Some people considered the live man in the photo to be mentally ill. But John says, everyone in the entire world was mentally ill except himself. So to me, both the man, who needed a companion on outings, and the “important” man, made of stone, on equal footing. Mental illness and my tallness; all a matter of perspective. nancymauerman.com
