"I dedicated the painting
to all the artists in the world
because they've dedicated
their lives to art.
This yellow head could be me,
since I've been trying to succeed
as an artist. There are the paint brushes and my hands -
or any artist's hands. In the
painting the artist is in her own
world; nobody is telling her how to feel; nobody's forcing her to
do anything she doesn't want to do.
Sometimes I get so immersed
in my paintings,
I'm just somewhere else.
I create my own universe that you
get to see
little by little
through every painting I work at
and every painting I create
is part of me going out a little by little to all of you.
