“The whole idea of Personal Record, or ‘PR’ Painting is ‘What’s my best?’ I won’t really know that until I push myself.”
“I think sometimes we don’t step out [on our own] because we don’t see everything ahead of time.”
“I was tempted to go small, because I didn’t know what I didn’t know. But because of the tools I’m given now, I’m not tempted to go that direction.”
