Opportunities

Yesterday I came back from the monthly  Trip to Basel. I left my mom there, because she has a visit at the doctor on monday. This means that I have to go back to Basel on monday too, to take her home tuesday. It would have been less stressful for me to just stay in Basel as well, but I had to come home feeding the animals, and especially, to take care of Gribi.
It was terribly cold when I arrived here, yesterday. The night encountered frost and I chilled in my bed. Today, I fired the oven like a maniac, and still had a hard time to warm up the room.

The day in Basel was a productive one, because I got an arrangement for the exhibit of my work in early Januray 2010 at...well, at the local Horsemeat store. I know it is pretty unusual and probably offending to some of my readers.
In  fact, I noticed that the store had paintings all over its back wall and some time ago I found the grit to ask the butcher, if he was the painter. He replied no, but that he shows different artists in a 6 month turn. I said hat I am an artist too and we agreed that I can have the next turn, starting next year.

So now, I am alone at home looking trough my originals trying to figure out which ones could appeal to the visitor of a butcher-shop.

I also received a copy of the analysis-report the business-counselor made about me. I received grades in different themes, such as "knowledge of business environment" where I received best, along with "skills at production". But I made least in the "commercialisation" departement. *whine*.
But all in all, it was a positive report.

Hey, herzlichen Glückwunsch mit der "Ausstellung" und dem doch recht positiven Report. Ich weiss ja nicht, welche Bilder du ausstellst, aber von denen die ich kenne, solltest du auf jedenfall den Höhlenlöwen mit Beute nehmen, der passt ja in ne Metzgerei xD

Naja und Zeichnungen von Pferden hast ja eh auch recht viele ;)

An den habe ich auch gedacht, nur ist der schon seit einiger Zeit verkauft. Ich denke aber Bilder von Karnivoren passen tatsächlich. :-)

I'm happy you did well in your report, even if you are not completely pleased ;)

I think that the idea of showing your art on the meat market is awesome. It would be the perfect idea behind a nice horror story, don't you think? I love my horror lol.

Are you going to take any pictures for us to see?

Diana Kennedy a dit…

@Magaly, yes, I even have made a horror-butcher story some years ago, but I don't think it would be really appreciated by the shop owner ;-)

Yes, I will shw the pictures here and try to make some photos of the them hanging in the shop.

WooHoo! I can't wait to see the pics. I understand why the butcher wouldn't appreciate a horror show about his work. You have to know and like horror themes (as yours truly does, and you I'm sure) to understand the respect and "beauty" of the thing.

This is funny. I was just wondering, why is it that I never get Diana's feeds? I was trying to figure things out when I realized I wasn't following you, duh!
