It's tough to sum up this last week-end in clermont-ferrand. Many new contacts and good ideas have been shared and I hope it will give birth to concrete stuff. Despite the french strike of railway network I've reached the place and came back home by sharing-car, without any trouble. It was really nice. I hope to be there next year.
I got the confirmation for my participation to the 8th "biennale du carnet de voyage" in Clermont-Ferrand (France).
There'll be 6 m2 to hang works and show sketchbooks fac-simile.
This drawing above was one my first travelsketch: "Heraklion", a greek Ferry, who finally drove me in Auvergne, almost 15 years after we left the harbour!!
When you'll reach Chonor's house, some sleeping dogs will welcome you. It has been very difficult to leave this place which became like a home. Kindness of people, beauty of decors. This painting I reproduced above particularly moved me. The surreal atmosphere reminds me a Giorgio de Chirico's piece. The guesthouse belongs to the norbulingka institute: just check the link for further informations.
