We talk about us….

Cotignac mon village de france, facebook community, honors us with a video on our gallery.

Here is the video of the PACO COMO art gallery, an American artist, painter who likes to photograph… A French photographer who likes to paint…

The mixture of these two arts gives you a magical place where intimacy and workshop mix.

Colleen, and Patrice, very sensitive to the wild animals of Africa and particularly to the fate reserved for bonobos, like all antithropoid monkeys, the bonobo, is a species particularly threatened because of its exclusive distribution in a region ravaged by the wars to which it add deforestation, diamond mining and hunting for its meat.

Populations have declined drastically over the past 30 years.

Many associations exist to help this massacre, in order to warn public opinion…

Ink making training by Colleen

Incredibly talented artist, Colleen, has been sharing her knowledge of ancient ink making methods… Iron Gall Ink.
Nature is so amazing! Gall wasps lay a single egg on a leaf bud. The larvae secretion changes the chemistry where a protective gall nut is formed around the larvae instead of a leaf. When it’s ready, the wasp will burrow it’s way out of the nut, leaving a little hole (swipe to see an example).
We’re surrounded by lots of oaks and collect little galls (with holes in them) that we’ve found on the forest path.
These galls contain a lot of tannin, and have been used to make ink since the Roman Empire, and from the middle ages until the twentieth century.
