To create one's own world, in any of the arts, takes courage.

The abstraction is often the most definite form 
for the intangible thing in myself that I can clarify in paint.

I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, 
you could not ignore its beauty. 

The bones seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive on the desert even tho' it is vast and empty and untouchable... and knows no kindness with all its beauty.

There's something about black. You feel hidden away in it.
