“If a canvas is in progress, like this one, I like to leave it in a conspicuous spot. That way, I’m always thinking about the next steps in its development, even if I’m not working on it at that particular moment.”

“I like to keep finished canvases alongside works in progress. It keeps the work in dialogue with each other, which helps me think of each piece as fitting within a larger body of work.”
