I create my work lying on my back under the horizontal canvas with the flame of a candle. Ans there is a square the viewer can change ( to engage or to dispute with the artist...or it's only a signature.

I, the lost pearl. “I, the lost pearl.”

Who is the pearl, who is lost.
with certificat and signature
