Franco -The Gardener
I’ve met a lot of people here in Germany, the most of them always give me nice comments about my art.
The other day some months ago, speaking in my primitive german, I showed the gardener my work while he was working on the plants. He liked it a lot and insisted he wanted a portrait of himself. That day I took a picture of him.
The time passed, I got busy and forgot to paint him. Some days ago he came back and insisted he wanted to buy the painting. He told me he knew that “art costs” and he wanted to give me “ein bisschen geld”.
I met his family, he helped me installing some things for one of my exhibitions, he has two small girls and I can tell he works really hard.
Of all the people I’ve met, I believe he’s a person that really knows the meaning of sowing, patience and flowering. And to me that sounds like art. I gave him the portrait as a gift last week, “kein geld” I said. He was very happy, and me too.
