EXPLORING THE PROMINENT ROLE

WOMEN PLAYED IN THE HISTORY OF

THE COLUMBUS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA.

>>> HI, I'M DAVID HOLM YOUR HOST

FOR THIS EPISODE OF “BROAD &

HIGH.”

COLUMBUS WOMEN PLAYED A BIG ROLE

IN THE COLUMBUS LITTLE

ORCHESTRA, THAT WAS THE

PREDECESSOR TO TODAY'S COLUMBUS

SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA.

HISTORIAN DOREEN UHAS SAUER

SHOWS US HOW WOMEN ANSWERED THE

CALL AND HELPED SAVE COLUMBUS'S

SYMPHONY.

♪♪

♪♪

>> I AM SO PRIVILEGED TO BE ABLE

TO INTERVIEW THE TWO OF YOU

BECAUSE, TODAY WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT AN ORGANIZATION THAT SAVED

AN ORGANIZATION.

AND I'M WONDERING IF I COULD

START WITH YOU SANDY, JUST TALK

ABOUT WHAT THE ORGANIZATION IS

WERE TALKING ABOUT --

>> WELL WERE TALKING ABOUT THE

WOMEN WHO WERE INVOLVED IN

CREATING AND HAVE BEEN

SUPPORTING THE COLUMBUS

SYMPHONY.

IT'S CURRENT NAME, FOR --

SEVENTY YEARS.

WHICH IS AN AMAZING THOUGHT,

THAT HERE WE ARE AND WE'RE

SITTING IN AN ARCHIVE THAT HAS

REALLY DOCUMENTED WHAT HAPPENED

FROM THE BEGINNING AND HOW IT

HAS GROWN AND HOW MUCH ITS MEANT

TO PEOPLE.

>> THERESA, COULD YOU GIVE A

LITTLE MORE DETAIL ABOUT THE

BEGINNING AND THE IMPORTANCE OF

IT.

>> IT WAS FOUNDED PRETTY MUCH

STANDARDLY BY CITY FATHERS

AROUND 1941.

AND IT WAS MORE OR LESS BIRTHED

FULL GROWN.

THEY STARTED IN AN ORCHESTRA

WITH PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS AND

THEY HIRED A FIRST CLASS

CONDUCTOR, IZLER SOLOMON.

AND THEN IT GARNERED THE SUPPORT

OF THE WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION OF

THE PHILHARMONIC, THEY WERE

KNOWN THEN.

WHO WOULD TRY TO RAISE MONEY

THROUGH VARIOUS MEANS AND

SUPPORT THEM.

>> I GUESS IN LOOKING THROUGH

THE MANY SCRAPBOOKS THAT HAVE

BEEN OUT, AND THIS IS JUST A

FRACTION OF THEM.

IT'S VERY EASY TO SEE THAT THERE

ARE LUNCHEONS AND THERE ARE

LOT'S OF PEOPLE WITH HATS AND

GLOVES ON, THE REQUIRED FASHION

MODE OF THE DAY.

AND -- THAT SORT OF LED PERHAPS

TO WHAT, SANDY, IT'S KIND OF IN

FRONT OF YOU AND IT'S ABOUT

USING HISTORIC THEMES AND

FASHION SHOW.

>> SO CLEARLY THERE HAVE BEEN A

LOT OF FASHION SHOWS THAT WERE

USED TO UNITE DIFFERENT SYMPHONY

UNITS AND HAVE A PROGRAM THAT

THEY ALL COULD ENJOY TOGETHER.

AND CERTAINLY MUSIC WAS A PART

OF THEM WITHOUT ANY QUESTION,

AND IN FACT IN OUR PARTICULAR

UNIT WE WOULD SPONSOR AN ANNUAL

LUNCHEON.

WHERE WE WOULD HAVE -- SOME OF

THE SYMPHONY MEMBERS AND THEIR

STUDENTS PLAY FOR US, BUT THEN

THERE WOULD BE A FASHION SHOW.

AND WE ALSO WOULD HAVE A SILENT

AUCTION SO THAT WE COULD BE

RAISING MONEY THAT WE COULD GIVE

TO THE SYMPHONY.

SO IT WAS ALWAYS SORT OF A

COMBINATION, BUT THERE'VE BEEN

SO MANY OTHER FUNDRAISING EVENTS

THAT DIDN'T INVOLVE THE HATS AND

GLOVES.

♪♪

♪♪

THE LECTURES OF NOTE WERE

SPONSORED BY THE WOMEN'S

ASSOCIATION OF THE COLUMBUS

SYMPHONY, AND WAS HELD IN THE

OHIO THEATRE.

AND THERE WAS A SERIES AND YOU

COULD BUY A SEASON SUBSCRIPTION

TO THEM. AND THEY WOULD BRING IN

CELEBRITIES AND HAVE THEM TALK

ABOUT ALL KINDS OF THINGS.

I MEAN -- FOR EXAMPLE HERE IS

RAY BOLGER TALKED ABOUT HIS

WORLD.

CELESTE HOLM, JUST ASK ME.

BUT THEN ALSO HERE'S

THOMAS HOVING, TALKING ABOUT THE

TOMB OF TUTANKHAMUN, SO IT WAS A

REAL VARIETY.

>> A SMORGASBORD?

>> YES, AND THEY WERE SELLOUTS.

AND WE HAD LOTS OF OTHER WAYS

THAT WOMEN COULD BE INVOLVED,

BUT COULD INVOLVE THE REST OF

THE COMMUNITY AS WELL.

>> AND WE ALSO HAVE LIKE THIS

LITTLE BOOKLET HERE.

WHICH IS ABOUT THE CANTERBURY

UNIT, WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT

THE UNITS, AND THEIR

ORGANIZATION.

AND WHAT WOULD'VE BEEN THEIR

RULE IN A SEASON OF THE

ORCHESTRA, OR PRECEDING IT?

>> WELL, I THINK THE UNITS WERE

REALLY A WONDERFUL WAY FOR A

VERY EXTENSIVE ORGANIZATION TO

HAVE SOME SMALLER GROUPS THAT

PLAYED A ROLE IN CARRYING OUT

THE MISSION, OF THE WOMEN'S

ASSOCIATION.

>> AND I THINK THAT IN THAT

SMALLER GROUP PEOPLE COULD COME

UP WITH IDEAS, BUT THEY ALL THEN

COULD JOIN THEIR IDEAS AND WORK

TOGETHER ON ALL KINDS OF

PROJECTS.

FOR FUNDRAISING AND THE

VOLUNTEERISM HAS BEEN EXTENSIVE

THROUGH THE YEARS.

>> THEY WERE SO ACTIVE THAT WHEN

THE PHILHARMONIC DISBANDED THEY

INSISTED ON STAYING TOGETHER.

♪♪

IN 1949, THEY WERE RUNNING A

DEFICIT.

THEY HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO MAKE

ENDS MEET -- SO AT THAT POINT

THE CITY FATHERS GOT TOGETHER,

THE BOARD MEMBERS AND SAID “WERE

NOT GOING TO BE THROWING ANY

MORE MONEY AT THIS, BUT WE WILL

PAY YOUR DEBTS. AND YOU'LL HAVE

TO DISBAND” THE WOMEN'S

ASSOCIATION OF THE PHILHARMONICS

SAID “OH NO, WE WON'T GO” AND SO

THEY STAYED.

AND FOR THE YEARS OF FORTY-NINE,

FIFTY, AND EARLY FIFTY-ONE THEY

WERE CONTINUING TO HAVE CARD

PARTIES, FASHION SHOWS, ALL THE

WAYS THAT THEY RAISED MONEY BUT

THEY WERE DONATING IT TOWARDS

SCHOLARSHIPS -- FOR MUSIC

STUDENTS.

THEN GEORGE HARDESTY AND THE

GROUP OF THE ADMINISTRATION

DECIDED THEY COULD SWING A SMALL

ORCHESTRA.

IT WASN'T GOING TO BE THE

PHILHARMONIC.

IT WASN'T GOING TO BE A

PROFESSIONAL ORCHESTRA BUT IT

WAS GOING TO BE A PROFESSIONAL

ORCHESTRA --SO MUCH AS THEY

WOULD BE UNION RATE MUSICIANS

BUT THEY WOULDN'T BE -- HAVE

FULL TIME SALARIES.

SO THAT WAS HOW THE COLUMBUS

LITTLE SYMPHONY WAS FORMED.

AND THEN THERE HAD BEEN A GRANT

FROM THE TELL, THAT WAS A LARGE

SUM OF MONEY AROUND 1978, I

THINK, AND THAT MADE THEM DECIDE

TO BE ABLE TO HAVE MORE FULL

TIMERS.

FROM THAT POINT ON WE WERE A

PROFESSIONAL ORCHESTRA AGAIN,

AFTER A LAPSE OF MAYBE FORTY,

FIFTY YEARS BUT BY THE TIME WE

HAD REACHED THE YEAR

2000 GRADUALLY AND INCREMENTALLY

THE ORCHESTRA THAT HAD BEEN, HAD

BEEN RECREATED AS THE FULL TIME

PROFESSIONAL ORCHESTRA.

>> ONE OF THE THINGS I NOTICED

IN GOING THROUGH SCRAPBOOKS, AND

I THINK I WAS ONLY FOUR PAGES

INTO LOOKING WERE THE NUMBER OF

WOMAN WHO WERE SO WELL KNOWN AND

THEY ARE STILL WELL KNOWN.

AND I'M THINKING YOU KNOW THERE

WAS ELEANOR GELPY.

THERE WAS MARY BISHOP, WHO LATER

ACTUALLY SAVES THE OHIO THEATRE

TO A GREAT EXTENT.

NOT JUST SAVING THE ORCHESTRA

NOW NOW, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

SAVING THE HOME.

>> THE PHYSICAL THEATER.

>> FOR AN ORCHESTRA >> YES.

>> WHEN IT BECAME APPARENT THAT

THE COLUMBUS SYMPHONY AT

VETERANS MEMORIAL WASN'T GOING

TO CONTINUE, BUT AT THE SAME

TIME THE OHIO THEATRE WAS IN

DANGER OF BEING RAISED.

IT TOOK A LOT OF EFFORT, BUT IT

TURNED OUT WITH A WONDERFUL

OUTCOME THAT THE WOMEN AND MEN

CAME TOGETHER AND REALLY WORKED

HARD TO SAVE THE OHIO THEATRE.

THERE WAS A BIG PUSH FROM THE

WOMEN TO MAKE SURE THAT

HAPPENED.

>> AND LOOKING BACK AT ALL OF

THIS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE

LEGACIES OF ALL OF THIS HISTORY,

AND THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS GROUP

TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY, AND

WHERE -- THE SYMPHONY HOPES TO

BE IN THE FUTURE?

>> I DO THINK THAT -- IN MANY

WAYS THE COLUMBUS SYMPHONY MAY

HAVE A UNIQUE ORIGIN STORY

BECAUSE GENERALLY MOST OF THESE

ORCHESTRAS WERE BEGUN BY CIVIC

MINDED CITY LEADERS WHO WANTED

TO HAVE THIS CULTURAL THING FOR

THEIR COMMUNITY AND -- OFTEN IN

THE WAY OF STATUS AND THIS

ORCHESTRA WAS BEGUN BECAUSE

WOMEN DUG THEIR HEELS IN.

♪♪

♪♪

AND DECIDED NO.

THE MEN HAVE FAILED, WE ARE

GOING TO PICK IT UP.

WE'RE GOING TO START SMALL, AND

WE'RE GOING TO BUILD IT.

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT WOMEN IN

THAT DAY AND THERE'S A

PERSISTENCE.

>> TENACIOUS.

>> YES, A TENACIOUS QUALITY OF,

WE WANT THIS, NOT FOR THE

ACCOLADES AND NOT FOR THE GLORY

BUT FOR OUR CHILDREN.

WE WANT THIS FOR A LEGACY.

FOR OUR CITY.

>> VERY WELL PUT.

>> THE LEGACY REALLY IS EMBODIED

IN ALL OF THIS.

YOU KNOW MUSIC IS THE HEART OF

SO MANY OF PEOPLE'S LIVES, AND

NOW ITS REALLY COME TO MEAN SO

MUCH FOR THE WHOLE COMMUNITY TO

HAVE THE KIND OF VARIETY WE

HAVE.

WE HAVE YOUNG PEOPLES CONCERTS,

WE HAVE CLASSICAL MUSIC SERIES,

WE HAVE PICNIC AT THE POPS.

AND IT'S A REAL COMMUNITY GEM.

A COMMUNITY ASSET, AND WE ALL

ARE THE BENEFICIARIES OF THE

HISTORY THAT THESE WOMEN REALLY

PROMOTED FROM THE BEGINNING.

>>> COLUMBUS AUTHOR AND EDUCATOR

CARLOTTA PENN WAS FRUSTRATED BY

THE LACK OF DIVERSITY IN

CHILDREN'S LITERATURE.

SO, SHE DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT

AND WROTE NOT ONE, BUT TWO BOOKS

FOR KIDS.

THE LATEST IS CALLED “THE TURTLE

WITH AN AFRO.”

AND IT ENCOURAGES YOUNG BLACK

GIRLS TO LOVE AND EMBRACE THE

VERSATILITY OF THEIR HAIR.

HERE'S HERE STORY.

♪♪

>>> TURTLE WAS FRUSTRATED.

IT WAS A BAD HAIR DAY.

HER SPRINGY, SPRIGHTLY CURLS

ABSOLUTLEY, POSITIVELY WOULD NOT

STAY IN PLACE.

I THINK IT'S VERY INTERESTING

AND VERY TELLING WHEN I THINK

ABOUT CULTURE AND BLACK CULTURE

AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN CULTURE,

AND THEN AFRICAN-AMERICAN

WOMEN'S CULTURE.

EVEN THOUGH AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND

AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN ARE

DIVERSE.

THERE ARE STILL SO MANY THINGS

THAT TIE US TOGETHER AND ONE OF

THOSE THINGS IS THE HAIR

EXPERIENCE.

THEY REFUSE TO OBEY THE BRUSH OR

THE COMB.

THEY DID NOT CARE HOW LOUD SHE

SCREAMED, OR HOW SHE MOANED.

THEY WERE FANTASTIC, FABULOUS,

FROLICKING, AND FISTY.

WHY, OH WHY? TURTLE ASKED.

WON'T YOU JUST BE NICE TO ME?

YOU KNOW, MY RELATIONSHIP WITH

MY OWN HAIR IS A DAILY

EXPERIENCE.

AND I DON'T KNOW THAT IS NOT AN

EXPERIENCE THAT IS HAD IN OTHER

COMMUNITIES.

BUT, I KNOW THE WAY WE TALK

ABOUT OUR HAIR IS UNIQUE TO OUR

COMMUNITY.

AND SO, FOR ME THE STORY IS NOT

ABOUT --

IT'S NOT A CONVERSATION WITH

MAINSTREAM ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT

THE HAIR IS OKAY, WHICH I THINK

HAS BEEN DONE IN BOOKS.

WHERE I THINK “THE TURTLE WITH

AN AFRO” IS DIFFERENT IS THAT

IT'S MORE OF AN ETERNAL

CONVERSATIONS WITH PEOPLE WHO

HAVE CURLY HAIR WHO WE KNOW GET

FRUSTRATED WITH IT.

WE WANT OUR CURLY HAIR.

YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT ABOUT ME

WANTING MY HAIR TO BE STRAIGHT.

I JUST WANT IT TO DO WHAT I WANT

IT TO DO AND IT DOESN'T DO THE

SAME THING EVERY DAY.

OR, IT TAKES TIME.

AND THAT'S FRUSTRATING.

BUT, THOSE CRAZY CURLS HAD

EXTRAVAGANT PLANS.

TO DANCE, AND JUMP, AND BOUNCE

ALL OVER HER HEAD.

SHIMMY, SHIMMY, SHIMMY.

SLIPE, SLIDE, TWIRL.

SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE IT OUT.

WHIRL, WHIRL, WHIRL.

I LIKE WHEN STORIES, YOU KNOW,

ARE POETRY AND ARE SONG.

AND KIDS LOVE POETRY AND SONG.

RAINBOW, BLUE SKY, OPEN UP

YOUR --

>> EYES.

>> I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN

COLUMBUS, OHIO.

WE GREW UP ON THE EAST SIDE OF

COLUMBUS.

MY LOVE OF BOOKS STARTED WITH MY

MOTHER.

SHE READ A LOT TO US WHEN WE

WERE YOUNGER.

SO, JUST THE TYPICAL LIKE

READING STORIES AT BED TIME.

AND MY PARENTS WERE REALLY BIG

ON INSTILLING IN US JUST THE

BEAUTY OF BLACK CULTURE AND

AFRICAN CULTURE.

WHEN I GOT A LITTLE BIT OLDER IS

WHEN I CAN REMEMBER BOOKS WITH

BLACK CHRACTERS.

>> TURTLE WATCHED THEM TWIST AND

TURN, FULL OF SHIMMER AND SHINE.

A THOUSAND WORKS OF ART SHE

THOUGHT AND EACH ONE IS MINE.

>> SO, TODAY I HAVE A HUSBAND

AND TWO CHILDREN.

AND I'M AN EDUCATOR AND A

WRITER.

I'VE GOT MY MASTERS DEGREE IN

COMPARATIVE STUDIES WHERE I

STUDIED AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN

AND THINKING ABOUT RACE AND THE

INFLUENCE OF COLORISM IN

AFIRCAN-AMERICAN WOMEN.

AND I EVENTUALLY WENT ON TO GET

MY DOCTORATE IN EDUCATION WHERE

MY FOCUS WAS MULTICULTURAL AND

EQUITY STUDIES.

AND SO, WHAT I THINK THE

THROUGHLINE THROUGH ALL OF THAT

IS JUST THINKING ABOUT PEOPLE

AND DIVERSITY IN OUR STORIES AND

HOW THEY MATTER TO THE LIVES

THAT WE LIVE.

>> SHE WHIPPED HER HEAD AROUND

AND AROUND.

JUMPED BACK, FORTH, UP, AND

DOWN.

STYLING AND PROFILING WITH HER

LOVELY LOCKS.

TURTLE WAS READY TO ROCK.

>> AND I'M NOT AN ARTIST.

MY FATHER WAS AN ARTIST.

MY BROTHER'S AN ARTIST.

I DIDN'T GET THE ART GENE.

IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME FOR THE

ILLUSTRATOR TO BE A BLACK WOMAN.

AND SO I FOUND HER ON INSTAGRAM.

I WENT THROUGH AND FOUND SOME

POSTS ABOUT BLACK WOMEN

ILLUSTRATORS.

WE BOTH TALKED ABOUT BEING

SENSATIVE TO THE TOPIC OF HAIR

AND THE IDEA OF THIS TURLE WAS

HAVING A BAD HAIR DAY.

HOW THAT COULD POTENTIALLY COULD

COME OFF AS SEEING CURLY HAIR AS

NEGATIVE.

SO, REALLY BEING INTENTIONAL

THROUGH THE STORY AND PICTURES

TO CONVEY THAT IT'S NOT THE HAIR

THAT WAS BAD.

EVERYBODY HAS BAD HAIR DAYS.

BUT, THIS IS A STORY ABOUT, YOU

KNOW, A TURTLE THAT'S

NEGOTIATING HER LOVE FOR HER

HAIR.

>> SO, JUST LIKE THAT TURTLE SAW

THE LIGHT.

HER CURLS WERE ABSOLUTELY,

POSITIVELY DYNAMITE.

>> WHEN THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I

FEEL LIKE FRUSTRATIONS WITH JUST

BEING AN INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE STRUGGLES OF

KNOWING THAT I FEEL LIKE I HAVE

A GOOD STORY AND I WANT THE

EXPOSURE.

YOU KNOW, YOU GET THOSE VOICES

IN YOUR HEAD AND THEN I HEAR

BACK FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE LIKE

THIS STORY MATTERS.

MY KIDS LIKE THIS STORY.

IT'S IMPORTANT AND DRIVES YOU TO

GO AHEAD AND KEEP PUTTING THOSE

STORIES OUT THERE BECAUSE PEOPLE

WANT THEM AND APPRECIATE THEM.

AND THEIR LIVES ARE CHANGED BY

STORIES.

JUST LIKE MY LIFE WAS CHANGED BY

STORIES.

SO, IT MATTERS.

>>> ARTIST SUSAN HANDAU'S

CANVASES ARE OF A MINIMALISTIC

NATURE.

WITH COLOR AND TEXTURE, SHE

CREATES ABSTRACT SHAPES

SURROUNDED BY NEUTRAL HUES.

WE HAD TO RENO, NEVADA FOR HER

STORY.

♪♪

>>> MY NAME IS SUSAN HANDAU AND

I'M AN ABSTRACT ARTIST.

I WORK IN MIXED MEDIA.

I DO ACRYLIC, OIL, SOMETIMES

WAX.

I PUT GYPSUM, MIX IT WIT GLUE

FOR TEXTURE.

AND SOMETIMES I CUT UP PAINTINGS

AND SEW THEM BACK TOGETHER.

I DO COLOR BLOCKING.

IT'S JUST BLOCKS OF COLOR THAT

ARE THATCHED AWAY.

IT'S AN ORGANIC KIND OF SHAPE.

IT'S NOT LIKE A SQUARE ANYMORE.

I'VE BEEN CHIPPING AWAY AT IT,

SCRATCHING AWAY AT IT.

AND THEN I'LL DO THE BORDER OR

THE BACKGROUND IN A NEUTRAL

COLOR.

CAN'T REALLY SAY WELL, THAT'S A

TREE OR SOMETHING.

OR, THAT'S LIKE EVEN LIKE A BOX

OR SOMETHING.

YOU KIND OF SAY OH, IT ALMOST

LOOKS LIKE THIS, BUT NO IT'S

NOT.

♪♪

WHEN I START A PAINTING, ALL I

KNOW IS THAT I'M GOING TO DO

COLOR BLOCKING.

AND REALLY I DO A LAYER OF

COLORS UPON COLORS.

AND THEN I PUT THE GYPSUM IN.

I CALL IT MUD.

YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT REALLY MUD,

BUT I JUST PUT THE MUD DOWN

THERE TO BUILD THE TEXTURE UP.

AND THEN YOU CAN SEE THAT IT

CRACKS A LOT.

IT DRIES AND THEN I START

PUTTING DIFFENT COLOR ON THERE

AND PUSH THE COLOR AROUND IN THE

CRACKS.

THEN I'LL PAINT ANOTHER COLOR

OVER TOP OF IT AND THEN THE ONE

COLOR WILL STAY IN THE CRACK AND

THEN I REALLY SCRAPE IT.

I START SCRAPING AND MARKING,

IN.

BECAUSE THEN YOU GET DIFFERENT

LAYERS THAT POP OUT.

♪♪

SO, THAT'S MY CANVASES.

SO, WITH MY PAPER THAT'S A WHOLE

DIFFERENT STORY.

WITH MY PAPER OUTPUT, A LITTLE

TEXTURE ON THERE.

AND THEN I'LL DO THE SAME KIND

OF THING WITH THE PAINT, THE

COLOR BLOCKING.

AND THEN WHEN I GET IT JUST SO,

JUST HOW I LIKE IT; THEN I CUT

IT UP.

I ACUTALLY CUT THE PAPER.

AND THEN I SEW IT ON TO ANOTHER

PIECE OF PAPER.

THEN I'LL JUST SEE HOW IT GOES

AND I DON'T REALLY EVER HAVE

ANYTHING PLANNED.

♪♪

COLOR TO ME IS PRETTY IMPORTANT.

WHEN I'M MIXING COLORS TO FIND

AN UNUSUAL COLOR, BIZARRE COLOR

COMBINATIONS, OR ONES THAT

REALLY YOU DON'T EXPECT TO SEE

TOGETHER.

AND THEN OF COURSE SHAPE.

I REALLY LIKE TO CUT AWAY AT AN

IMAGE TO MAKE IT REALLY MORE

ORGANIC.

IF IT'S NOT RIGHT IN MY MIND, I

CAN'T SHOW IT.

JUST KEEP WORKING ON IT UNTIL

ITS RIGHT FOR ME.

EVEN THEN, AFTER A SHOW, IF A

PAINTING DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT;

I'LL CHANGE IT.

I'LL PAINT OVER IT.

I'VE PAINTED OVER SO MANY

PAINTINGS.

THIS ONE HERE BEHIND ME.

THAT LIKE --

THERE MIGHT BE TWO OR THREE

PAINTINGS UNDER THAT ONE.

I REALLY LIKE BEAUTIFUL THINGS

AND THAT'S LIKE MY GOAL IS TO

FOR MYSELF TO REALLY LIKE IT.

THEN I'M SO PROUD OF IT BECAUSE

I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

WHEN SOMEBODY BUYS MY PAINTING

I'M LIKE OH MY GOSH.

THEY FEEL THE SAME WAY I FEEL.

IT'S NOT THE MONEY THING.

IT'S THE FACT THAT WOW, SOMEBODY

REALLY LIKES WHAT I LIKE.

THAT'S WHAT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD.

IT'S ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY.
