Self Portrait with Model and (still-living) Plants.


A good likeness of me in this rather naive painting, quickly executed and full of primary colors and simple forms. (Self Portrait with Model before the Plants died; 50 x 60 cms; oil on canvas; 2006). It makes me nostaligic beause we threw away those plants this week, reduced as they were to mere blackened stumps. Nothing ever survives in that vast room despite Alberto's attempts to grow things. Only creativity. But I am going to buy replacement plants because hope survives also...
