"We were in (New) Jersey the other day," Gonzales recalls, "and there was a little store with a sign that said, 'All the profits go to my kids.' In other words, 'If you're shopping with us, we're able to send them to school, to buy them clothes, to put meat on the table' -all the little things they're able to do as a small family. It makes you think, if you're spending money on a big corporation, they're spending it on their third home, but if you can help someone out, it feels ten times better.

The Manhattan Bridge and the New York City Skyline. "A wonderful person shared a quote last year by Henri Matisse that really resonated with me," says Gucwa."'A large part of the beauty of a picture arises from the struggle which an artist wages with his limited medium.' I think that there is a tremendous amount of truth in the (idea) that when you are limited, you are forced to work extremely hard to get the results you desire."
