"Most people will forgive a great deal about the shortcomings they see in any particular painting you accomplish - providing what lies at its core makes a profound shift in the ongoing life of that community.

I'm most interested in collaboratively and creatively making a sustained profound difference in music, writing and painting with my community.

Otherwise your community has to re-create the listening for those ideas at some later date - often centuries later - and sometimes it becomes lost forever. So your work must never die when you do."
