"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."
"As I knitted (it wasn’t a conceptual decision; it was emotional), I learned that what I opened up through the process was to allow myself time to think. Time was the crux of the matter, lack of time for Ethyl Eichelberger and the time that I had to reflect."
