It's funny because it's both self-deprecating and sincere.

Oil on gessoboard
You know what? I think this painting is more a sign of a success than my final self portrait turned out to be. It's not a masterpiece or groundbreaking, true. In fact, this painting took half an hour, tops. But look: it reads, it has dimensionality, there is a sense of light. In short, it is a successful painting.
That's what this project was about. It was about learning how to use paint, how to manipulate it comfortably, how to stop struggling against the medium.
