Gentleman

                                                           "Gentleman" self portrait.
                                                                    81x65cm. 
                                                               Oil on canvas.

This is a self portrait that a made many year ago! I wanted to paint myself in 1800 officer costume. I love wear like those! Imagining summer evening, fresh air blow from the sea brining some sweet scent of flowers! Thousands of candles illuminating space, everything glow of celebrations! Beautiful ladies, gentlemen, music, dances, delicious food, it is a really time full of magic and mystery feel like you are fly back in to the time!

It takes a lot to do a self portrait! I think it's very challenging indeed.
I would love to have the opportunity to visit the 1800s too when the (upper class) ladies and men dressed up so nicely to have extravagant picnics and dances :) Ahhh, I would love to get all dressed up like that! We think similar for sure!
