Portrait of the Artist in His Youth by 

This is a very old self portrait I’ve painted when I got back from the army duty and was a fresh History and English student in my native town of Sibiu, Romania. I was in love with my present wife and after the stressful but interesting experience of the army (supposedly an experience that makes a man out of a boy; true in my case) I was again hoping to LIVE a free life. In the last 3-4 months of the army I was drawing and painting a lot, with a group of soldiers-artists friends: the officers in command wanted to take advantage of our talent to stock some paintings for the inter-army socialist art contests…and also for their own benefit…which was ok with us, bunch of veterans soldiers now, awainting for “liberation”… as for this one, it was new years eve and, instead of partying (my love was at 30 km from me) I took it to paint my portrait… Van Gogh was my mentor, of course.
