Last week we introduced a new feature in the gallery. You won’t believe what it is… A Guess? No chance!
The new feature is…. Internet!
Ha ha Ha!
Well, since we have moved here we had no time to work on our internet connection and we were still working alternately on the net, being connected via wires. Now we have got an airport, and of course, the gallery being next door, we are able to steal from our own connection.
Considering the fact that most of the works I have done this year (series such as The Fantascapes, The Eroscapes, the Fantasprays, The Aquagames, The Pastel Games and finally “La Création du Monde”) are only available as Giclee prints, I thought that the best strategy would be to have some Giclee prints framed, as samples, and to show my online gallery to the clients, to allow them to choose what they want to order. Actually I have put my laptop there, but I might one day install a more sophisticated device, such as a projection screen… we will see.
Anyway the first day we had internet in the gallery we had the visit of an English singer and her art-loving daughter. Seeing one of my paintings, “Mildew Bookworm” she said:
“This would make a great character for a story!”
Well, the truth is, that about 2 years ago, Kevin wrote a short story, “The Thief of Hearts and The Firecat”, based on a series of my paintings, and made a little video out of it, in which Mildew narrates the story. And this is exactly what these 2 ladies and Kevin are laughing at on this photo:
So, if you want to have a laugh too, look at the following video!
And if you want to look at Part 2, Mildew says
“Find it yourselves!”
