A Brazilian Rebel in Portugal…
“…I am a Brazilian writer and I was looking for a good Picture to the cover of my next book, when I found your painting on Café Crem site.
I lived in Portugal for one year in 2011, and I wrote a story about a Brazilian women who left her country behind and go to Portugal trying to find more intellect people (in Brazil people loves more football and samba than books…).
So I would like to ask you if you let me use your painting on the cover of my book…”
But as she then found the painting with the blond woman having a cafe at a bar, she wrote:
“… Last night I was checking your web page and it really made me dream. That’s the power of art, always take us to a better place.
But now I have another problem here…
Knowing your work I fell in love with another painting and now I’m in doubt of what to use it.
Could you give me your opinion?
The book’s name is IRINA BLOOM, she is a Brazilian diplomat who get very disappointed when found out that none of the presidents and ministers keep the habit of reading. So she moved to Portugal looking for people who are more interested in literature and art. But in the middle of her journey, she understand that people are the same no matter where you go, and knowledge is something personal, something that you have to search for yourself.
Is a very poetic book and celebrates of the biggest writers in the history: like Shakespeare, Tolstoi, Victor Hugo, Fernando Pessoa, and so on.
IRINA BLOOM is a young blond lady who always wears black.
She is a kind of intellectual rebel.
So I found this painting who really looks like her.
The other painting is also nice, because has the portuguese flag and there is an old man Reading, which is perfect for Irina’s partner, an old ex-consul who has a very interesting Publisher in Portugal. He publishes only his own books! lol
So tell me what you like the most, please!..”
