Back to the Future?

© 2010 Armando Salas. ---------Beatrix Jahn is working on several paintings for an auction and the benefits will go to an orphanage. In the beginning she thought of abstract paintings and I sent several sketches to help her. Clever woman, she noticed that the abstract art was not the most suitable thing for children's room and I was really surprised because of the result: Trixi has natural talent to do illustrations for children. Probably her parents, Margot (tender person having an excellent sense of humor) and Günter (writer) wrote their genetic inheritance in Trixi. Perhaps Trixi did a trip to the future and saw the fairy tales I paint :-) This is my tribute to Trixi, dear friend and sensitive person. ---- Digital collage:few covers I painted for fairy tales and photo of Trixi (taken yesterday :-)
