“I generally start my canvas on the floor with some general ideas, but very vague, and try to get a good deal happening that’s unintended, so that it will lead me into ways that I wouldn’t normally go, you know. Just anything to get me started in a new direction that will flower into some kind of new, imaginative thing. So I think that’s the constant plan of the artist, that destruction of his habits and cliches, you know.” ~ James Brooks
