I'm right now working on a suggestion for a public commission; an art piece to be in the stairs of a school (for students age 6-16). Yesterday I went to the school to check how some colours appear on the actual location, to make some real life size tests (no, the art piece is not going to be in brown paper ...) and to double check some measurements. I got some helpers (age around 7-8) who turned up every break to assist me - and ask questions. Today I realized that some of the measurements were really weird ... but it doesn't matter; as one boy totally made my day:
- Wow - you are an ARTIST! Having you as mum is like having Leonardo da Vinci as your dad! WOW! That is so cool! Do you also construct and invent things?
here I was so tempted to totally lie, but said:
- I can also build some things, yes
- You are very lucky to not be living in France because there girls are not allowed to be artists at all! At least not 2 years ago.
- I didn't know that, I said
this also made me smile: Famous paintings improved by Cats
.... I'm so cool ....
