Gouache painting – 50 x 65 cm.
I am interrupting my series Fantascapes to show you what my life has been like these last weeks… I had unfortunately no much time to visit even my own blog and to thank you all for all the wonderful comments and poems you wrote. They all deeply touched me, and even more the fact too that you kept coming, although I was rather absent myself.
As I told it already in Cafe Crem:
About 6 months ago I have been contacted by a big printing company from Eastern Europa. They had found my bullfight paintings on the net, and approached me by mail in the following way::
you are unable to understand how happy I am to finally find some images for our calendar title. The idea of this calendar is because the next year following to chinese will be bull year. so we have decided to have calendar of corrida, but it was very difficult to find some good paintings for it. Please let me know, if you have enough images for calendar title – i need 12 or 13 paintings. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO HAVE THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE… “
Of course I accepted. The calendar being sold in 9 different countries, it could not be a better chance for me! I got a contract for 2009 and 2010, and I delivered my first 13 paintings in October 2007. The 2009 calendar is about to be published now and will appear in July in big stores all over Europe.
I must deliver the next 13 paintings for the 2010 calendar on the 1st of September this year, and as we will be travelling a lot, and even definitely moving to Kevin’s place here, and me even opening a new gallery, I won’t have time later on to make these paintings. And this is why, since we arrived here, I have taken the cape again and spend my days fighting the bulls…
Above, one of the paintings I did 2 weeks ago for the calendar 2010. I have finished now the 13 ones, and I am really happy about it, as I started to get quite nervous surrounded by all these aggressive beasts…
This painting above is still available as an original It is also available as Giclee print, on paper or canvas, in many different dimensions, and also as greeting card. Click in the widget below to go to my shop online
