"I recently visited a series of 12 paintings that were purchased by the City of Chicago for a branch of the Chicago Public Library, in 1982. I had never seen them installed, so I went to see them in this public building. I was happy to see that they held up for me, artistically. This was the first significant sale of my career, at age 25, and seeing this work was like looking into a mirror at my younger self. It is wonderful to look back and see where I've come from, and feel good about the journey."
