The Hands Resist Him by LibMahenots The Hands Resist Him by LibMahenots
This is the famous internet meme.
I painted the original in 1972, a self portrait age five.
It re-appeared in 2001 on Ebay as 'the haunted painting'

I try to copy your painting. But only in pencils.
The picture does not haunt me... not yet :)

is it true that the owner of the galey where it first hung and the art critic who wrote about it died within a year?

This painting has haunted me for years of my life.
If you recall your inspiration, could you let me know what it was maybe?

I still don't get about a "doll" one and hands back there. Do you still remember your inspiration on this picture? Personally I don't believe in whatever people said. It's just hallucinate I said nothing more.
