I am really astonished after watching this. Incredible. Marvelous. So humble, meditative, and cheerful at the same time. Your love towards colours and oils, towards Painting itself, is here more evident than ever.

Some famous painters don't have self-portraits as wonderful as this one of yours. I congratulate you wholeheartedly...

Maybe the BEST painting of all your blog, in my opinion! If I make a list, surely this would be in the first place.

I have nothing but praise. A true MASTERPIECE.

Galina, my compliments, too, on the new arrangement of your blog. Your paintings are wonderful. If they convey this much feeling in this online format, I can only imagine how inspiring they must be when viewed in person. I hope someday that I am lucky enough to do just that.

Great self portrait Galina. It really reminds me of Georges Rouault a painter who I enjoy.

Wow Galina, this is great and I agree a wonderful self portrait. You are a very strong and emotional painter. I thought of Georges Rouault too. Like the music.

Gregory Becker said...

Absolutely beautiful. It is a very touching painting. You look a little sad. I've done my self portait one time and everyone who commented on it said the same thing, "Why are you so sad?"
Are you sad sometimes? Like me?
