about this artwork

yin and yang in the land of morning calm

2018

 

 

during my stay at 'boot camp' this spring I felt the urge to do some artistic activities for a change ... I went to freiburg in the near black forest to get myself some canvas, paint and such and began working on my balcony ... this is what came out of it ...

 

nota bene :

'boot camp' was the name I gave to the clinic I spent three weeks in to get rid of my chronic back pain 

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 !!!
