Sometimes I don’t mind when a painting doesn’t sell because it’s such a pleasure living with it, but as soon as someone loves it too, I change my mind and want to share the pleasure if it’s company.

The Hydra is famous but I didn’t know that one of it’s defenses is it’s stinky. If you cut off one of it’s heads, it smells terrible. Smell is a sense that we miss too often in telling legends. I painted the Hydra on a beautiful day on an island before it’s gruesome end.
