Amero - Painting Of Auctionhouse Christie's

Todays painting is situated at auctionhouse Christie's. Usually the room is jampacked with people, but now there's not a soul in sight. The auctioneer isn't there and the seats are empty. All you see is the desk of the auctioneer and a partial view of the screen with currency conversions.

If you take a closer look at this screen you might notice a very strange currency called Amero. For a while now I hear all these wild rumours going around about the Amero being the replacement currency of the dollar, valid in Canada, US and Mexico only.

Not sure if there's any truth in these rumours, but I thought it would be a cool thing to make a painting with the Amero in it. If the Amero ever sees the light of day people might wonder how on earth I knew about it in 2010.

kind regards, Gerard
