"I just would go through hundreds of billboard sheets and now and then I would find something I liked. There was one occasion when it was a big head, and I got maybe an ear. Or I got a nose, or a forehead and an eye. And those were a basis for paintings back then. You know, you always come
back to the same idea but from a different direction."
