"Beauty is just kind of an accident. Beauty is just a happenstance. Beauty is the remainders of being a painter."
"I don’t think there is subject matter to consider too important to use humor with. A lot of times, people wonder if any of this was intended- you know, like humor is just by accident all the time and maybe it’s not a good thing to laugh, or maybe they’re not getting it, maybe they’re seeing something in it that they shouldn’t. But that’s not the case. I have no problems with my own attempts at humor."
