To be in Dubai at the great event in the Armani Ballroom was a great experience for me and my daughter Vanessa! It was like a fairytale in 1001 nights for us. The event, where I had the big surprise to be between the Top 20 in the category painting! Great! I am very happy about the success and I will never forget the wonderful time in Dubai! We have seen much and we loved it! We are sure to visit Dubai once more! Thank you for all! The violinist was great and makes the whole evening very very special! My compliments!
