Art of Learning

If you really want to know

I got tagged by James Neil Hollingsworth a delightful and thoughtful painter. I am now required to list 5 little known facts about myself, then “tag” five other artists to do the same.

Here are my five:

  1. When I was 15 I had this mad infatuation (nothing more) with a niece of Edvard Munch. We worked together (she was technically my boss) I was never sure if it was because she was a relative of a famous artist and I wanted to be one or that I thought she looked like Maria Schell. Maria Schell
  2. I did and still do get confused when reading something in big type like on a movie theater billboard. As a kid I went by myself to see Samson and Delilah and the African Queen. Looking for the Lion and then the Queen. It would bother me that I didn’t seem to comprehend some things, but it worked out in the end with my feeling OK outside of my comfort zone.
  3. My wife and I once owned an advertising agency. I would experience pain when watching “Thirty Something” on TV
  4. I love Movies and wanted to be a director, believed that Federico Fellini, Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni were geniuses, named my daughter after a movie (Sundays with Cybele) , went to film school before they were hip, made one animated film (after seeing Jim Henson’s first film). Dropped out, cause I wanted to eat.
  5. I am married to a wonderful, powerful public speaker and coach, who is working on her second book. I am very lucky, but you already knew that.Dr. Joel P. Martin

The Artist that I’ve tagged are:

  2. It was fun reading these bits about you. Very interesting! I worked for an ad agency and also for the Amer. Assoc. of Ad Agencies in NY in my early 20s…but I loved that show 30 Something. Thanks for tagging me. I appreciate your thinking of me, but I’ve actually done this one once and then decided not to do memes anymore (only just learned that word). Anyway, thanks for sharing your 5 things (when I did it it was 7!)
