Phil Wagner says:
“Art has everything to do with “courage” and not much to do with “talent”. And, like the postman, an artist rain or shine, “shows up”. Good art is a conversion experience. Like love, laughter, poetry and music, the art-experience is about relationship, direct and immediate. Yes! Art and the art-process demonstrate a way of ‘seeing the real world anew’ – a world which is not a fear-whipped place inhabited by boogey-men, but one filled with wonder and appreciation, a world which ‘welcomes’ you. Amen.”
Meanwhile, a long time ago, Phil Wagner did go to graduate school and law school. He was in the Peace Corps, made documentary films and built many houses. Phil also wrote and taught poetry, fell madly in love, laughed heartily, made and taught music. Like everybody else he had his ups and downs, but continuously dabbled with watercolors, until 1994, when he progressively took up oil painting as a full time occupation. He loves it --- and for good reason!”
