Glad you liked it. I gave many large paintings away at a party last Friday. That worked out well. Two were not taken so I dropped them off at a charity thrift store. ☺

Its just a nickname - someone described it as industrial,yet poetic,which I quite like. It started off just petal - but I thought it was a bit fragile sounding - so I added the petrol!!

Thank you for your warm welcome and welcome home, hope you had a great galactic adventure.  Now that you are back, I will see what I can do about sending off some Mail Art. If it travels through the ionosphere and back, just pray it doesn't get sucked into a worm hole.  Thanks again and looking forward to trading with you.

I feel completely chastised. In English then the lingua franca of space time travellers. Ok this is the plan. I am trying to organize a prison break. And I figure a celestial scribe could come in handy in case there was a knife fight but this is unlikely. I just figure between me and a celestial scribe you'd be better. I am assuming in your intergalactic travels the story will be familiar. My gel is imprisoned in a dungeon in the foothills of the Himalyas. She's been imprisoned for 13 years on indefinite detention without trial. She is a follower of a dead Indian called Mohandas K Gandhi who read Tolstoy and the Gita and got kicked out a train when he was a young barrister and decided to make the world a safer place through non-violent assertive compassion which he called satyagraha. She thinks she can help her people the Manipuris basically by stopping it from being legal to rape, gang rape or murder them if you are soldier sent to protect them. Sometimes I have to give a lot more explanation but given you are the Honorary Consul for the Terrene Embassy boy have I been trying to get through to consular help there for ages. Well I was hoping you could send her some mail art. I figure something simple that sums up the quintessence of hope and love and transformation. No butterflies. Or anything. In return I have purchased half a dozen mad irish sheep coloured gel pens and I am going to work on something for you. But when you are ready you send her some mail art and help save you know the plot of the magnificent seven with Yul Bryner and Stephen McQueen or the Akiro Kurosawa film about seven ronin who save poor villagers. Well you'd be like that only post modernist ironic. What I mean is. They have been keeping her in solitary confinement to try to break her spirit. I think they succeeded but she became stronger. It's apparently how a lotus germinates. They look like dragon eggs and stay dormant for ages until a lightening strike or something tries to smash it. Then they start to grow. But they only grow in muddy fetid still waters. They get no nourishment from fresh water. Then the lotus flowers and the awakened one sits on top of but you must have heard that tale before. So that's it really. If you want to read about her or need more info I can try say more. But it's really. She's a simple beautiful woman and she has agreed to marry me. I am more the idiot useless son of swaran deep. But in order to win her hand I need to get her out of prison. And that's where you come it. You do mail art. That's what I ask of you. Once the festivals start here in Portumna I'll send you some more arty stuff. I'll try send you a summary in art form but i have absolutely no talent for art. I don't have any talent for lobbying or prison breaks but I am all she's got for now. So if you are still in. Glad to have you on board. I figure she gets some art work from the Republic of Patland Brazil and that will set the censors in a tizzy. And she will know that I love her. It's sort of trouvere, troubadour minnesinger work but mail art and to be sent to Irom Sharmila Chanu

You mean I've hit level five duolingo portugues and I still don't have enough fluency to organize a prison break in Portugues. ay caramba se necesita una poca de gracia.
Una poca de gracia por mí, por ti ay ariba ay ariba por ti seré, por ti seré por ti seré.

Next you'll tell me that's not even portugues. What do you say your excellency.
