Sometimes I feel like a little kid whose performing for the whole world. Naïve I may be, and naïve my work may appear. I am not the first person to do this: I think of Pablo Picasso's early work (prior to 1907 Picasso's work appears young and naïve). Picasso's early work was solid and emotive, but nothing new or revolutionary. Through the year 1906 Picasso practiced his craft, but it was in 1907 that it suddenly transitioned, became original, and authentically Picasso. There is a parallel here, between Picasso and me. As example, I show a couple of Picasso's works, the first Mendigos Junto Al Mar, 1903, the second Friendship, 1908. Just five years separate these works, and wow, what a dramatic change it is! I am in the midst of a similarly dramatic transition. I am three years into my five years of change.
