about this artwork
and in the beginning was ... the canvas
it all started with the urge to work with canvas and paint ...
once this artwork finished I was pretty sure that I would not have any more creative
ideas for a very long time.
little had I known that I would be unable to stop creating five and a half
years later ...
life can sure be a bitch, but sometimes it pushes you in unknown territory to meet with your inner self and start doing things you would never have suspected you'd be able to do.
nice to know:
although I started working on this one in late NOV 2013 I gave it some final touches in early 2014 ...
therefore, there is no artwork of mine actually dated '2013'
MESSAGE from THE NEWBIE that I am in the Art World
As a newbie int the art jungle I had to learn quite a painful lesson indeed - two years ago I was contacted by
ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK
telling me that they were quite interested in representing me and my artwork.
THAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER ...
As a newbie I have never before heard about so-called VANITY GALLERIES, etc. and believed that - if you wish to exhibit here and there - then one would have to pay for that. Today I - as well as plenty of other unhappy artists which had put their faith in ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK CITY - have learned that I had been fooled for almost 2 years and that my reputation as an artist must have been dangerously jeopardized because of my ignorance and naiveté, or - as many art critics see it - for wanting to boost my ego.
That has never been my attention at all ... unfortunuately, I didn't know it better at that time.
What had happen however is that not only did ART PRODUCTIONS NEW YORK CITY NOT do anything of what they promised and got largely paid for
but worst of all - they never returned my two artworks in their "care"
# 280 THE TEAR
as well as
# 285 BREAKING FREE - the last journey of huguette
The two artworks that connected me to my late mother-in-law !!!
May this mishap be a warning to other inexperienced artists - never accept invitations from any VANITY GALLERY that are pure scam ...
Be careful, watch out, check out before making a decision involving your artwork or your money !!!
