I came across a blog post highlighting a Japanese watercolor painter, Yoko Tada, who is getting a collection of works published. Yoko Tada is 100 years old. They started painting when they were in their 80s.
I am still quite far away from my 80s (for now). But I love hearing stories like this. It’s refreshing to hear about. There’s so many stories of artists, musicians, and even programmers who have the same story of: “oh yeah, I have been doing this since I was 4.” It’s almost soul crushing to try and be a beginner when there’s so many stories like that. The internet especially has so many of these. I love hearing about writers, artists, etc that started way later in life.
A journal about life during the 2030s will be much more interesting to find. Bad paintings of clouds (they’re so hard for me). I got a few years to get better.
