In the corner of Paul Wonner’s San Francisco studio rests a small cot, ready to accommodate a mid-afternoon nap. At 87, Wonner tires easily and no longer has the strength to paint large canvases. Yet the artist, whose voice resonates with calm certainty, sees his age as an advantage. “One of the good things about being this old is that you can do whatever the hell you want,” he says, tracing the lines etched in his face with knobby fingers.
