"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."
"When I was working on the watercolors, there was a phenomenon that I wanted to bring into the painting. As I started to work with that element and bring it into one painting for its different references it was just not working. I kept pushing the color into the painting where there had been an intense amount of drawing and an intense action between all the different marks."
