"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"’The Series’ paintings were done on canvas on a dark gray ground which projected the white and the color. I used three different whites- titanium, zinc, and a kind of mixed white- which I don’t usually do. (Usually I’m just using one because I’m not involved with painting the color white.)"
