Things you don’t expect to find. But you do.
I was at this crafts fair the other day in Zagreb (Croatia) on account of that my friend was there selling some jewelry she designes together with her sister. I stumbled across this one girl who was the only one there (I think) selling some paintings at the stand. All of the paintings, about 100 of them, were just sitting there on a table, in a pile, so you couldn’t see them very well as you walked down the isle. I was there with my sister and a friend, and we asked her to show us the paintings. And after she did I was so glad that we had asked her to show us. It turns out her boyfriend is the author of the paintings, Michel, she said his name was. I think he’s french. Now, this guy’s got talent and I loved his work so much I had to buy something. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring much money with me but when she told us the prices I was blown away by how cheap he would sell them. I ended up taking just one I liked the most but I would have taken at least one more if I had brought more cash with me. I wasn’t expecting it I guess. Anyways, this is the painting that belongs to me now (and I so wish I could have given the girl more money for it cause it is definitely worth it), and another one I also liked. (I ended up finding his photos on line, actually his Facebook account and I downloaded them from there). Anyways, I think they didn’t sell much that day and that I made me remember two things: how much I sometimes hate the fact that so many people these days don’t appreciate art (especially modern art) and can just walk by something so beautiful. The other thing was: the promotion of your work is soooo MPORTANT. As for the first thing, it’s a damn shame because so many people miss out on such small wonders of human imagination and creativity and as for the second thing, the promotion part, well, I guess some things never change.
The one I bought, didn’t say the title of it but it’s pretty obvious what it depicts
The one I also liked, called “The Energy”
