With Aging, Art is Candy to the Brain

Photography by Nick Karvounis Last night I had a conversation with a Norwegian friend living in Spain. She is fifty and recently published a beautiful new book. I am in my 70s. We hadn’t seen each other for years and were trying to figure out a way to meet on our limited incomes since I was now in Europe. I knew a trip would be inspiring and feed my imagination but I had been putting it off due to financial fears. I suddenly blurted out “I am coming to Spain in September, I promise!” It was one of my senior moments: If Not Now, When? Why Not? What Can They Do To Me? These are the realizations that the aging experience when they unexpectedly jump into the …

The Invincible Vulnerability of the Heart

I have been feeling vulnerable after receiving a round of requests for assistance by artists in nations where hunger is now a daily reality. These individuals were seriously vulnerable to suffering. I was vulnerable to my financial ability to assist them and each of us was uncomfortable with the conversations that occurred. We all felt weak but the opposite was true. We were brave and we shared our truths (or at least most of us did). We need to remind ourselves that vulnerability is not weakness. It is our strength.  Everything will not go your way, nor should it do so. It is when life wrestles with you that we mature, and seldom before. We cannot evolve into our potential when we remain frustrated and …

Irony, Mystery & the Collective Unconscious

Which of these paintings sold for $5.71 million? On June 27, 2019, I posted this to my Facebook page. Painting still remains a mystery to me. One of these paintings just sold for £4.5 million ($5.71 million). The other was just painted a few hours ago as part of my personal therapy and playtime. I don’t think when I paint. I just paint for hours on end and get very, very dirty. I love it…and I do it solely for my own enjoyment. I am feeling a bit weird. Either I am in sync some strange way or I just unconsciously plagiarized, albeit rather poorly, an artist I have never heard about.Yesterday and today I painted eight paintings after purchasing a lot of frames and old paintings …

Finding Joy in the Effort

When I was born my parents were in a State Supreme Court battle over the right to run a preschool that their neighbors felt was too radical. It was shortly after WWII and the good folks from the US Midwest just wanted life to go back to its quiet complacency. The school was integrated by race, war survivors, disabilities, and social status. Although the student’s parents were enthusiastic advocates for their bold new teaching techniques acquired by postwar artists and intellectuals, the stress of the legal battle was overwhelming for my parents. I was injured during birth and born partially paralyzed. Despite their rugged schedules, my parents exercised my muscles every hour day and night. As I grew older, I was encouraged to take physical …
