In Venice this summer I ordered "cuttlefish" at a restaurant situated beautifully by a channel.
I did not know what it was.
Later when we came to Assisi I was told that I had eaten an octopus.
Then I understood the color (black!) and the consistency (rubber!)of my meal.
This spring I made a work with a motif of a happy crab called "No Crap" inspired from
Magritte's work "This is not a Pipe".
Lucca, my little granddaughter, is at present learning counting and
A combination of all this is the Children's Book Online to Lucca,
In English "The Cuttlefish and The Crab".
In Danish "Blęksprutten og Krabben".
