You always complete a work in one sitting. Why is that?

It's not that I can't stop, it's just the idea that's how long my attention span lasts. And in order to create this very specific form of intensity it's very necessary for me to work in this way. It's just something that became a habit and then became a norm, so to speak; it's just the most convenient way for me to concentrate. I use drawings and before I begin painting the imagery is completely finalized. So the execution of the painting goes very fast, but the work before the painting, the conceptualizing of the image itself is a long period of time.
