Artist Deborah Cooper: "What are your paintings about?"
Wayne Ashton: "If they're about anything, they're about inspiration, innocence, happiness and nature."
Deborah Cooper: "Do you identify with those things?"
Wayne Ashton: "Possibly, but not necessarily every day. They are, though, four of the most mysterious and perplexing engines of all other things, and so in all likelihood they are four of the most important things. Inspiration, for instance, is deeply mysterious, but it drives everything."
