Oil on Linen
Working still today on loosening up, leaving things alone, not losing the sketchy quality that I love while still refining things that I want to....it's a narrow little road to walk on. Today, though, I was also painting with someone in mind. The birthday boy....Vincent Van Gogh. Yes, if he was still with us, he'd be 161 today, March 30. So many things he taught us artists - living with rejection, with no sales, lack of respect, but also with great joy, a love of color, a love of nature, love of creating!
I love his story because of his great passion in spite of his circumstances!
"I would rather die of passion than of boredom!"
- Vincent Van Gogh
