"It was in the Domino paintings where I felt free to take green right out of a landscape context into any operation I cared to. Green became a very exciting kind of event for me. And to use green out of context felt quite fresh. I mean, what’s green? A tree, a grass, a leaf- but not in my work! So I’ve had that kind of a take- that 'Hey, this is a color that you don’t usually see in this context.' I love to work with twenty different colors of green."
