that's me. not me by tamino that's me. not me by tamino
this is a little portrait ive made for an exhibition of small works. they give you a little box and you have to do anything you want with it.

this is me because i did capture a lot of myself, but at the same time its not me because its a painting (like magritte would say)

acrylics on a little plastic box - 14x9cm - 2005

I just love the overall look of the portrait. the expression is honest.. sincere yet almost rigid in the structure of your face. but with a touch of elegance found in the eyes. with how small it is, there is much detail found inside. self portraits are always good.

thats a nice self portrait, you look fluent with the medium of acrilic painting!, ive done two acrylic paintings but they were only done at school and ignoring my teacher hehehehe. but yeah, especially the eyes...

I'm impressed you got that in such a tiny space. I love the textures, it just adds a certain raw quality to the facial expressions.

I like how you pulled in Magritte. :) Fantastic eyes on this one. I'm sorry I haven't commented in so long. I've been busy and forgot. Now, I'm on a commenting crusade.

Ya it has been a long time... I actually just got back today from 22 days in France. It was amazing and I'm inspired to do something. I've been painting and drawing for school but I'm having trouble building confidence. I just need to sketch some things and post them regardless of what I think. I've been taking photographs but I don't consider mine art, just pretty pictures.
