"This painting is sort of my inspirational image. I was fifteen, and a little girl named Debbie who was born blind, who had never seen the color green or the shape of a tree, asked me a question after the wind blew through her long brown hair.
'Can you tell me, what color is the wind?'
That question just blew my mind because I was just losing my sight then. She woke up my creative sense by asking me that question."
