"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"I had an uncle, Jon Gnagy, who had a television show called Learn to Draw. He designed drawings so that he could then teach other people how to do them. He would show you step by step by step, and I just got the feeling that it never occurred to him to come up with a painting or a drawing that he couldn’t tell someone else how to do."
