Me at 50



Artist Statement

This is an self-portrait in oil painting. I attach also the sketch in charcoal. This was a special time in my life, very propound.

How it fits into contest

In this particular period of my life I needed to be very strong on faith to pass trough the difficult times I faced. I deffinetly stand firm and peaceful, with the shield of faith protecting me, but working hard and fighting with the sword of the spirit, literally. Was not easy to me but I made it, and I'm very proud of this right now. Now, we are facing a difficult times, everybody, all the world around, and I feel I was ready and strong in advance. (English is not my language, hope you can understand the concept)
