Revealing The Truth:

Long long time ago a stranger asked me to make his portrait... So I did.

I sent him the image and I never heard back from him again since that moment.

Than I saw one painting and I felt that it was very familiar to me: http://www.tadaocern.com/VincentVanGogh/VVGP.jpg

And then I got it - It was a copy of my photo!

I did a little research on that and it seem that the guy who draw(copied) it is quite well known around...

His name is Vincent Van Gogh and I was lucky enough to make his portrait.

Pity that he never mentioned me and I can't find his contact now...
