that typical question

"to talk about painting is not only difficult but perhaps pointless too.  You can only express in words what words are capable of expressing, what language can communicate.  Painting has nothing to do with that.  That includes the typical question: what were you thinking? You can't think of anything, painting is another form of thinking.  What interests me in general, and this also applies to painting, are things I don't understand."

growing pains

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
