Tulsa Race Riot of 1921

This story is from the collection Paint it Blue It’s May thirtieth, 1921 and I’m a teenage shoeshiner entering a large downtown Tulsa building, anxious to use the “colored” restroom on the top floor. I hurry into the elevator, trip, and to avoid falling grasp the arm of a teenage white girl whose screams send […]

Painting in Color

Joe started drawing when he was very young. He drew horses, cartoons, Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger, airplanes, things he related to. He also liked drawing on walls and in coloring books. He wasn’t thinking of art as a career and never took classes or followed guidelines that someone has to declare him an artist […]

Drink the Giant Orange

I rush into the art museum and within minutes feel thirsty and hot and dizzy. I spot relief in a painting called Giant Orange topped by a tall orange and black sign and staffed by a pretty young lady inside a huge orange ball below. “Whaddya got to drink?” She looks at me as if […]

Interviewing Van Gogh

I step to the side of his gravestone, enlivened by ivy and red flowers, and say, “Vincent, may I please speak to you a moment?” “You may not,” says Theo, the man in the adjacent plot. “And why not?” “My brother’s tired of more than a century of adulation and wealth he’ll never experience. And […]

Iranian Art, David Hockney, and LACMA

Boyd, an art lover visiting California the first time in years, reads with increasing concern a two-sided handout titled: The Future at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and waves the news at a museum employee. “What’s this? Almost half the galleries are closed and soon the others’ll be shuttered, too.” She smiles and says, […]

Angry Bird

You don’t like bird eyes and I hate human eyes so am already enraged when I dive for milk that isn’t milk but plaster almost breaking my beak. Next time my beak’s striking the painter’s nose. Source: Angry Because It’s Plaster, Not Milk by Ed Ruscha at The Broad. Click Here

Four Forbidden Scenes

I know you think this is a wonderful upper middle class neighborhood but beware blossoming girl who wears shorts too short and bites apple while squirting black hose, serene dog whose barks close master’s ears, sharp-breasted lady blowing smoke her mother sprays to overcome, and ominous lady legs in high heels hovering over dapper hat […]

Andy Warhol at The Broad Museum

Hot Grasshoppers

How insipid you are, joking about our lovemaking. You’re sexual and athletic nonentities. I, in noteworthy contrast, can horizontally leap a distant meter, twenty times my body length. To match that, you’d have to long jump a hundred twenty feet. Imagine. Do you know anyone who in a day can eat his or her body […]

Mama Can Sing

Hey, I like that poster. It didn’t actually start that way, the original’s acrylic on canvas bordered by pieced cloth called Mama Can Sing, Papa Can Blow; Somebody Stole My Broken Heart. Faith Ringgold’s the artist. I don’t know anything about her but I like that hot lady she painted thick-haired, red-lipped, big-busted, arms-spread, round-hipped, […]

A Dawn

Packed in a dark city canyon we march with bayonet faces to the Great War. We march for our country and those who say we must fight. We march toward bullets, shells, and trenches. We march to A Dawn many never see. Notes: A Dawn was painted by C.R.W. Nevinson in 1914. A Dawn by […]

Sunday Morning in the Mines

Are you looking at my legs? I bet you are because they’re the best damn legs of anyone in Sunday Morning in the Mines. I know you wonder how my pants, held high by my chest, got those big holes. I don’t remember and don’t want to after another six days digging for gold in […]

Extra Credit

I don’t like elementary school much because in books letters jump around or reverse themselves, and my friends read faster and get better grades and that’s okay, but I don’t want to flunk so I go to teachers and say, “Can I do extra credit projects?” “Like what?” “I’ll turn in some drawings and find […]

Walter Challenges Margaret Keane

All right. You’ve read them. You should have. There are plenty of interviews when Margaret Keane admits she wouldn’t have had a career in art unless I’d virtually swept her off the streets and romanced and married her while teaching her to paint and permitting her to accompany me to exhibitions and benefit from the […]

Picasso and Rivera Talk

Really, this is quite unusual, self-portraits talking to each other from a wall on either side of a gallery door. The man on the left, a short muscular brute standing bare-chested, says, “Get out of that frame.” “Okay, as long as you do, too.” Pablo Picasso, cocky at age twenty-five in 1906, steps naked, it […]

Pursuing Frank Romero

On a recent Saturday afternoon, enjoying paintings at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, I hear a security guard say, “Sir, you didn’t pay,” and turn to see him walk fast toward a man in a suit who draws his wallet and says, “Detective Jones, LAPD.” “How can we help you, sir?” […]

Bay Area Delights

Don’t you love the Bay Area?

Images of War

Young Ed Reep enters Bologna and photographs a brick wall marred by bullets under partisan blood, and shattered buildings lining the path of U.S. troops, and tanks recently hot now at rest, and a fascist’s hands touching the sky, and three citizens applauding from a balcony, and smiling young women as they rush to extend […]

Woman on Checkerboard

After emboldening myself I approach “Woman and Checkerboard” and say, “Ma’am, you appear rather morose this morning.” “Is that a surprise?

Van Gogh In the Road

On an exotic summer Sunday I step into the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and head not toward a vision but a sound. “It’s the light or, rather, the lack of light in The Outskirts of Paris that makes this dirt road and the man in it faceless and gray and in need of southern […]

Water Rights

“Help us, please,” says an erect white man shooting his rifle. “What should I do?” “Pick up a rifle and start firing.” “You and your partner have the only two.” “Then go get help.” “You deserve help from an Indian scout?” “Sure. My buddy and I’d be happy to just give the Indians the whole […]

Van Gogh on the Verge

Handing over my ticket, I’m excited to enter the Van Gogh Museum for another emotional exhibition. I’ve been to many and read about all the others. On the Verge of Insanity is a great title. By that I mean it’s appropriate. Look at Self-Portrait with a Bandaged Ear and Pipe: Vincent looms under a heavy […]

The Ragpicker

“Sir, I’ve admired you for years,” I tell The Ragpicker. “People in Paris saw a man carrying a long stick, and usually crossed the street.” “They’re forgotten. You’re a masterpiece visited by thousands a week in the Norton Simon Museum.” “They also see a bum.” “It’s your suffering people appreciate when they gaze at your […]

Slab Man

Freud and Wife Visit Picasso

Inside Lucian Freud’s Studio

Don’t burden me with bourgeois morality. I’m going where excitement is, Lucian Freud’s London studio, and don’t pretend he’d respect mine if I had one and the door was open. Tonight’s perfect. I hear the rascal’s out of town. Walking up six flights of stairs I tinker with the lock and saunter in. I shan’t […]

Parking Lot Painter

No one buys my oil paintings on canvas. No one buys my acrylics. No one buys my watercolors. No one hires me to paint murals. They’re all fools. I have great work crying to be seen, and I prove it every weekend at street painting festivals all over. We don’t actually paint. We draw, usually […]

Mental Steroids

A physician of renown I certainly am, though for a generation I have focused most of my intellect on the rather irrelevant albeit stimulating task of helping athletes run faster, jump higher, hit more home runs, and register more knockouts with shoulder pads and fists.

Eruption of Enrique Guzman

You consider that a national-prize painting, ten feet of completely black resin and charcoal offering no message or creativity. I don’t care we’re in the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City and some might say I’m jealous I didn’t win. Nonsense. It’s necessary to be outraged and impossible to tolerate such a mockery of […]

You’ve never heard of me? That’s all right, don’t apologize. Most people haven’t. I’ll explain.

My progress enthuses instructors, and when I’m eighteen, two years after my father dies, they urge […]

Klimt Paints Gold

“Herr Klimt, you certainly prepare most thoroughly.” “Always, and especially for you, Frau Bloch-Bauer.” “How much longer will it take?” “Much of that depends on you, Madame.
