Acrylic on canvas / Acrylico sobre tela
I always use images as a reference to my work. In this specific one I only used the one bellow.

Uso sempre imagens de referência para o meu trabalho. Nesta usei a que está abaixo.

When I was a child I remember that I drew in expectation to feel an aesthetic feeling in the end. The first time it happened was when I painted the corridor wall with my crayons (I ran crazy to tell my parents but they didn’t even look at the drawing, they just yelled at me).
I’m painting/drawing now in expectation of that aesthetic pleasure. I never know if what I do is good or not; art or not; but if I feel that pleasure, I know that at least it means something to me, may it be art or not (however I try to educate myself a lot about art in expectation to get this feeling improved to some sort of “good taste”, but I’ll never know – so I just follow my instinct).

Quando era criança desenhava à espera de sentir o momento do prazer final, quando chega àquela altura que se olha para o que fizemos e gostamos simplesmente de olhar…
Faço estas coisas agora à espera dessa sensação de prazer que acontece no final. Nunca sei se é bom ou não, se é arte ou não, mas se sentir esse prazer, ao menos sei que significa algo para mim; seja isso arte ou não (no entanto, tento educar-me o máximo possível sobre arte para ter este sentimento mais sensível a algo considerado bom, mas nunca vou saber – por isso vou pelo instinto).
