They rarely just happen. There's usually a point in every painting where I just throw up my hands and say: "I don't know what in the hell I'm doing!"
I guess that's why it's so satisfying when I succeed.
"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."
