There are no easy paintings.

As I prepare for my first show, it’s hard, hard work.  And it occurred to me:  there are no easy paintings.  Every one is like a battle between me and the painting.  And I am the underdog.

If I think I’ll just tweak it, it’s hard, because one tweak affects everything else.  House of cards.

And if I think a painting needs a major rework … well, damn it.  It always does.

Sometimes I think, the better you become, the harder it gets.  There are just so many mistakes to make, and I guess it is my destiny to make all of them.  The best you can do is try not to repeat the same mistakes.
