||Q: Can you tell us about the different series of work you have created and what they embody?
||Q: You often speak about the Mexican and Guatemalan figures in your paintings as serving a function analogous to actors in a repertory company. In other words, a particular figure plays a different role each time it appears in one of your pastel paintings. Would you choose a figure and show how you have painted it through the years?
||Q: Can you talk a little bit about your process? What happens before you even begin a pastel painting?
||Q: If your “actors” could talk, what might they say about you as a director?
||Q: Do the figures go on to play different roles in different paintings or are their characters recurring?
