The first time I used Google Earth was fantastic. I could not believe that someone had photographed the entire planet, and that the exploration of this world was accessible to all. Browsing by chance I discovered amazing sceneries, looking at the city streets from far away I could accomplish wonderful virtual travels. I discover unexpected color blends at the mouths of the rivers or along the coast of the sea, shades that make uncertain the border between land and water. The cultivated fields create a dense mosaic of colors. The view from a great distance reduces the details and makes possible a new form of representation of the landscape. Basically, the only thing that is changed is the point of view.
I safely package my sold works by myself. They are never rolled but always packed flat. My artworks are put between two sheets of acid free paper with paper protection for the corners, than closed in a plastic envelope. The envelope is stiffen with a sheet of polystyrene, and the whole thing is completed with several layers of cardboard on both sides. In case of canvases the package is also protected with bubble packaging.
