Mensur Self Portrait by paulrichardjames Mensur Self Portrait by paulrichardjames
8x5.5 inches, oil on wood panel, another painting from the "Mensur" series. This time a self portrait. The dueling tradition born in Germany, of dueling until one opponent receives a daring scar and then it is stitched and off to the beer hall for all. It still goes on today.

It looks like he's appearing/materialising from the past and out of a modern wall. Incredible. I love it.

It is amazing - when you look closely it is just blurry, but still I have feeling I am looking at something detailed. I do not know how to describe it. The work with colours and how you "form" the mass with them is fantastic.
