When it comes to representing myself in a painting, I have mixed feelings about it. A mixture of fascination, fear and challenge only surpassed by the idea that what you consider to be you, is not more than any other subject you deal with when painting. At the end to consider oneself as a character is not different of what actors do with their rolls. I have also learn, as part of my personal experience. that being an observer of whatever one do, the way one behave in every life event, is part of the teachings of many spiritual traditions that implies a path of a deep self reflection and knowledge.
