"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."
"There were a lot of things I did want to shed, and one of them was being tasteful. That’s one of the reasons I gave up painting—because it was all about being tasteful. You know, the right red next to the right blue...and you’re very carefully mixing the colors."
