"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."
"The white on the dark ground sometimes made blue, so you would have a kind of blue halo- but there was no real blue pigment involved. It was just the white and the dark gray that caused that. I was aware of that, and it all became part of the composition."
- Robert Ryman
