"You make a painting and show it to a hundred people. Fifty people will like it, fifty won’t. If seventy-five like it, that’s a good thing. I worked really hard on it and it does really well. People like my style and they collect it. My work is about peace and love. I’m happy that whole idea is booming. That’s what we need on earth."
