"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"’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.)"
