I do not paint what is popular; longing for popularity is a gentle illness of youth. It helps us grow, but we need to cure ourselves of it to flourish. 


Today I stopped the dialogue with the audience.

Hundreds of minds projecting their meaning onto the canvas that is in front of me are making me nervous and inaccurate.

I need to clear the fog.

I want to be alone here with them: my canvas, my paint, my brushes.

Listen to their silence and let them guide me.

Surrender.

Let them lead the dance.

Let them express what we all feel.

When respected and well understood,

they never lie.
