about this artwork

cocorico or the problem with the gallic rooster




here the rooster is represented by the french colours - bleu-blanc-rouge (blue-white-red).

the rooster is the symbole of france, le coq francais, and when it sings the french call it "cocorico" ...

cocorico also has the meaning of "being very centered on france and its culture" in quite a negative way that is ...

thus the name I chose for this artwork ... because sometimes some french are a bit too

"cocorico" for me ... as well as for my husband who is french himself hating

that sort of self-centeredness of his compatriots.

nevertheless, I still do love france and its culture, just as much as I do love other

countries and their rich cultures ...

so stop being too much "cocorico" ...

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 - four years ago I was contacted by 


telling me that they were quite interested in representing me and my artwork.


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 !!!
