Artists don’t retire

Tiberius, now 73, figured that between his wife’s income, his Social Security benefits and the pension from his time as a researcher in Toronto, he could afford to spend more time in the studio at his Coconut Grove home. But he wasn’t ready to quit the university.

“When you’re cultivating something , growing something — whether it’s a business, painting or academic work — it’s hard to leave it,” Tiberius says.

      Thank you for your comments. Three exclamation points, wow. I’m flattered. Yes, the father-daughter arrangement has been great for the father (me). All my adult life I juggled two careers, as a professor of psychology and a painter. A few years ago when I retired as professor it was a huge change going from total emersion with people to the rather isolating work of painting. My daughter Kiry joining the studio has made all the difference. We discuss every painting. When one of us is stuck, he or she consults the other. I’m so lucky to be able to spend time during my retirement with my daughter. And she is so talented, if I must say so myself. 🙂
      Kind regards,
