Memorial Day

If Vincent had the opportunity to celebrate Memorial Day with us he would probably decorate graves with sunflowers.

What Is Art?

I heard this today: Art is a myth. 
Art is what you can get away with.

Vincent & Pointillism

Pointillism= a Post Impressionist  technique where the paint is applied in small distinct dots of color. This technique uses to eye's ability to blend color. Up close you see dots, but back away and the colors blend.

Van Gogh Again?

I let Vincent into my life and now he's following me everywhere. Today I went to the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa and there he was waiting for me in the gift shop !!!!

My van Gogh II

I did some more work on this painting. Actually, I'm pretty satisfied with the hat; now if I can just leave it alone.

My van Gogh

My van Gogh in progress
I started this several years ago when I was considering it as the subject for a banner. I'm very insecure about portraits; very inexperienced. But after reading 
Vincent & Theo I decide to continue my effort. I'll record my progress here; keep watching.
