I only have one memory, of when I was very young, and I was trying to go on an adventure. My mother always said that I was running away, but really all I wanted to do was to see what was around the corner. So, all my life I have been looking around the corner and trying to discover things, and I have succeeded. I call this ‘The Pioneer’, the little guy with his little toy, coming off the bricks into the wilderness. And it’s the wilderness that has been my passion for all these years. The painting is 28 x 28 inches, I painted it in 1975, and its oil on canvas. I gave this to my mother because she liked the sketch I did.
