One does not simply have a favorite…

... when there is so much good art around. I was asked what was my favorite miniature at Miniartetxtil - To weave dreams and I don't know what to say. I like something about most of them.

The wonderful nightmare

During the opening of Miniartetxtil 2016 - To weave dreams, I also met Gertraud Enzinger, who made a wonderful representation of a nightmare.
