"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."
"I’ve always considered myself learning on the job. I’d like to have a challenge where you see the challenge in the finished work itself...not just this glossed over kind of drawing, painting that someone has mastered and got, arrived there at that point and does the same thing over and over. I don’t want to go back to that kind of style and stay there..."
