+ When I am halfway there with a painting, it can occasionally be thrilling.. But it happens very rarely; usually it's agony. I go to great pains to mask the agony. But the struggle is there. It's the invisible enemy.

+ I want painting to be difficult to do. The more obstacles, obstructions, problems.. the better.

+ In a successful painting everything is integral.. all the parts belong to the whole. If you remove an aspect or element you are removing its wholeness.

+ Maybe the given person, cup, or landscape is lost before one gets to painting. A figure exerts a continuing and unspecified influence on a painting as the canvas develops. The represented forms are loaded with psychological feeling. It can't ever just be painting.
