Happy Birthday, Fernando Botero

Happy 81st birthday to Fernando Botero, an artist who is nowhere near ready to loosen the grip on his paintbrush. “I often think about death and it saddens me to leave this world and not be able to paint more. I love it so much,” said Botero, who still paints an average of ten hours each day. “I work more now perhaps because I know that there is so little time left.”
