"When I first started painting first I was just trying to make a painting you see. Which seemed like a very difficult thing to do.
And these paintings were jumped upon as primitives. And I was told that they were good and that I should do more of them.
Which did encourage me. And then meeting people like Max and Marcel and eventually some of the others, Man Ray was a great friend of mine in those days. I began to see the possibility of poetry and painting. Poetry and of course humor in painting are the ar © D.R. eas I'm really most interested in."
