I had a couple weeks break in my art practice, and when it happens, I feel an urgent need to create something. This time I remembered words of Ilya Repin (the most renowned Russian artist of the 19th century, 1844 – 1930), who was saying: “use an accessible and rich nature – yourself”. I grabbed a mirror… and Self-portrait with glasses had appeared.
