The title is from an academic article that examines excellence amongst Olympic swimmers. The author surmises that innate talent is nonexistent. Instead, excellence stems from deliberate and methodical practice. Nothing is random. The banality & repetition of the distinct dots of color in this painting reflects this concept. Furthermore, it is indicative of how I feel about being an artist and improving.

This work and its title is based on the water near my studio at San Francisco's Hunter's Point. When I started this painting, I had recently seen Monet's waterlilies in an exhibition. I bought the postcard to send to a friend. I put the postcard in my studio but never sent it. I didn't realize it at the time but the colors and brushstrokes of this painting were heavily influenced by Monet.

The title of this painting is intentionally left ambiguous; it is not clear whether the painting is the darkest day or lightest day of the year. My work deals with opposites, and I wanted this large painting to feel both warm and cold at the same time.

This painting is part of my Murmuration Series, which refers to "the aerial ballet" performed when hundreds or thousands of birds fly in swooping, intricately coordinated patterns through the sky. A lot of my paintings are grayscale, and I wanted this painting to feel warmer (like the first days of Spring) while still working primarily with cool colors.

The title refers to "the aerial ballet" performed when hundreds or thousands of birds fly in swooping, intricately coordinated patterns through the sky. It's a defense mechanism; the birds strive to put distance between themselves and their predator. The movement of the flock is never led by an individual bird, but is governed by all of the birds.

The title of this painting refers to airport codes. When I was 20, I went to Europe alone. I rode trains across France and Spain, and the landscape reminded me of California. Several months later, I traveled via train from Los Angeles to San Diego. The passing scenery outside now recalled Barcelona. These parallel images of distant places lingered in my mind; I did not do the first (and smaller) version of this painting until a decade later.
