"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."
"New Development on what was a Citrus Growing Estate, Highland, California" (1985)
"I found what interested me most about the Los Angeles basin was the natural part of it. And when you think about Los Angeles, that isn’t the thing that normally pops to your mind. But it’s an amazingly verdant if somewhat ominous landscape. There’s nothing like the mixture of the smell of eucalyptus and orange groves to pull you in two directions really."
