Portraits of Artists 76

I like to make big paintings because it's like a physical workout, but I don't make them just because they're large. When you're around large works, they're a big ambience of colour, just like some great murals. You can't quite see them, you just feel some warmth. It's like being in a golden cut rectangle room which is about the size of a short shoebox. (James Rosenquist)
