48th entry, Brienzwiler
Exhibition in Paris
We packed 14 works of art and at 4 am headed for Paris to make sure we would arrive at 1 pm at the gallery Thuillier. It worked out beautifully!
The city made me nervous. All this hustle and bustle from morning to night. Cars, noise, people, the many faces of the human condition. Children begging in the metro made me sad. Palaces, museums, history – varied and unique. And then the art! Just delicious and simply the best.
I liked the Musèe d’Orsay. I saw so many works of art that I started to question myself as an artist. Back home I viewed my own art very critically and came to the conclusion that I did pretty well. And I realized that each age and era have their own demands, ideas, and challenges that need to be addressed and made the best of it.
The vernissage was terrific and successful. But I am happy to live in a village with a population of only 490 surrounded by greenery and white mountains.
