Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Paul Wonner was an American artist who became famous during the 50s as an abstract expressionist connected to the Bay Area Figurative Movement. His best known works are those of male bathers and boys with bouquets.
