Hi, Bernardita,

I enjoyed meeting you and designing with you at Ñame's house last week. I hope your trip home was safe and that your life in Santiago is not too disturbed by the quake.

After you left, I saw the sticky I gave you about magnets on the sofa. It must have not been sticky enough! You had written a note to yourself on it, so I thought I'd rewrite it all to you:

My note:
rare earth magnets: "neodymium" (with "alnica" crossed out.)

Your note on the back:
magnet comprar bolsa de magnetos -cho (- looks like cen or dn or something)

I just had another thought about the magnets. The neodymium magnets are so strong that in the act of pulling a painting off the metal sheet behind, it could make a small crease in the laminated painting. Thus (maybe) a small piece of the same sheet should be taped to the back of the painting between the magnet and the painting as a reinforcement for the painting. I also think you should try first the smallest one you can find. Here is an example I found online:

I like your impressionistic, almost abstract paintings. This one grabbed my attention

I also saw part of your video. Are those the cutouts you told me about? The effect of the paintings almost floating on the wall without a background or frame is really striking. And they're huge! (I guess one painting needs more than one magnet.) Fantastic work. Thank you.

I hope you are liking my booklet. Please send me any thoughts or comments you have about it (use contact form on my site).

Best wishes with your work.
