Maybe there are artists out there who want you to believe that they never have failures, or that they never struggle. They want to wear the hat of a master. I was brought up to tell the truth, and the truth of it all is that for every success in the studio, there have been a pile of failures. The reason why a good painting is so wondrous is that they don't come around every day. Not for mere mortals such as myself. I am willing to share all of this with you, dear darling readers, because somehow I know you love me despite my imperfections. And for that, I am eternally grateful.
