    Hello, I’m really intrigued by your art. My girl friend and I are both fans and we like being a part of your vision. I make art too and I feel like our styles are pretty similar. If you would like I added my website in the reply.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels).
