Once upon a time I watched a TV show, where an artist was demonstrating some painting techniques and at same time was selling oil paints, brushes etc. I phoned at the given number and ordered the whole package. Following the instructions I made the first strokes with a trembling hand and that was how for the first time in my life I painted a picture. After painting a few landscapes, I grew ambitious and attempted a portrait of my daughter from her photograph. "It is not exactly what a real painter is supposed to do", my friends kept saying, "one should paint from life!" So I installed a mirror on the table and made my first self-portrait.
At this time my works include landscapes and a few samples of genre painting which I submit to your judgement.
These following two pictures was painted by me when I was only 10 years old.
