‘I have done things that I regret’: Court Painter says he regrets some of his past plastic surgery.
At Monday’s regular coffee klatch episode at an unidentified trendy Calgary Coffee House, guest celebrity artist Court Painter , accompanied by his two mongrels , Mutt & Jeff revealed that he regrets his history with plastic surgery when asked what it feels like to mature in the spotlight.
“I feel lucky. I don’t feel burdened by it. I mean, people can be pretty mean like Chris Cran, though, now that there’s all this social media. The comments … if I ever want to feel really bad about myself, I just click on one of those … comment sections,” Court Painter whimpered, in reference to online criticism.
“I think there’s a pressure to maintain (your looks), not just because of my artistic fame, but just, you know, being a septuagenarian contrarian in this art business. Getting more mature has not been … I don’t think it’s the easiest thing,” he said. “I think I was trying to keep up with getting maturer, trying to chase that elusive butterfly of prefection… it’s something you can’t keep up with when the powder falls from your wings and a new reality rolls over you like a tidal wave of ripeness.
The 2 for 1 deal of a hair and beard transplant was perhaps not my best decision however the addition of laugh lines around the sparkling blue windows to my soul continues to intrigue Inglewood millennials and hipsters looking up briefly from their phones .”
At this moment his septuagenarian Press Attache interrupted proceedings and encouraged Court Painter to “zip it” and get back to the studio.
