"I see the same thing every day, little people I see every day on the street, they look like the little figures in my paintings. I get a lot of my ideas sometime just riding my bicycle around, just looking at reality, looking life straight in its face. I walk, or either ride my bike, and look at peoples hanging around the buildings. I try to catch them in their environments and paint what I see. If they're not happy sometimes, I paint what it like that."
