A Long Way Home

This image is from an NYT slideshow of paintings done by elderly men and women at 20 senior centers in New York City. They’re completely awesome, as well as some of the comments by the artists about what they were trying to represent, or why they included the objects they did.

I’ve always been tempted to write a story based on a picture, (Three Farmers on Their Way to a Dance, anyone?). Each of these paintings has so many words hidden inside, it seems like a story would pour out the minute I tapped the surface.

  1. Thanks for these. I missed them both in the print edition and on the Web.
