A big challenge!!!

Within a month, next 14th and 15th  November I'll be present at my first Miniatures Show as a dealer! It will be in Madrid at Tom Bishop's Show, a very well known show which means a great responsability. As much as I know, there will be 149 artists from many countries, included Portugal of course.

I'm preparing it since last year. From time to time, I think it is  boldness! As I've told before, I started this work recently.   I have a long practice, more than 30 years, with different artistic expressions, but miniatures need other skills. I tried to develop them, working hard every day.

I'll be there, side by side, with a great artist and a great friend too, with whom I have learned a lot during this time - Ana Maria Morgado. You can see her marvellous work in her blog

Each piece I'll present was built from scratch, inspired here and there by real pieces, carefully chosen. Sometimes the choice was difficult. There are undreds of masterpieces I'd like to try...

Now, is time to start thinking how to present them to the public. I must admit that it's not easy. I have to travel to a foreign country, carrying everything I remember that may be usefull or needed. I'm a little bit nervous about that... I want  that everything will be perfect. I hope I'll achieve it.

Here is my first trial. I hope  you like it.

"Encased nostalgia"

 

 
Again another British "coup".
Because, according to everybody's judgment, they are accountable for the bird-cage trend - without birds in them - to have in one's home.
 
This must, undoubtedly have been, a craving to let nature in around you. In the beginning, these bird-cages were meant to stay outside.
 
In any case, what is absolutely certain,  is that these small hanging houses exude real poetry.
 
The one shown here is made of tainted wood, it has three turrets, and dates from early twentieth century.
 
 
This is the replica, in a 1/12 scale, of an original belonging in 1991 to a French Antique dealer, Marc Bouchetar, Marché Paul-Bert, published in number 448 of the magazine "Maison Française".
