Coins, Text, 21,0 x 29,7 cm (frame)
I was spending the evening. When asked, I told that I am a visual artist.

All, to be sure, held the labors of art in high esteem and complained of the organization of the modern world that makes so difficult the pursuit of those labors, as well as the exercise of meditation, indispensable to the artist. (Camus, Albert. “Jonas or the Artist at Work”)

As we were leaving, I was given 3 euros 10 cents to get tipsy – artists are known to drink.

I didn’t drink my money. I saved and framed the coins.
