Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork   

 
The painting sent to AOAP is literally a "JOURNEY OF A FLY ON THE CEILING FOR FIVE MINUTES DURING A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER AFTERNOON". What trace will we leave on earth? Probably no better than the course of this fly which turns in circles. The graphic result is however very harmonious and for that alone, life is worth living.  

 

Very proud to contribute to an important health cause
