About Van Gogh

Painting isn't always about actually painting. Reading about it or in this case watching a movie about it counts as much. I happened to catch Lust for Life ( not the Iggy Pop song) a sort of bio-novel about Vincent Van Gogh based on the book by Irving Stone ( The Agony and The Ecstasy). Kirk Douglas is passionately fantastic as the fanatical Van Gogh. But, my real joy was in discovering that the sets and characters are replications of his paintings. I was quite captivated. The bedroom is sweet and colorful just as it is in the painting. The Postman, Roulin shows up and you instantly know who he is. Two thumbs up. I've been away from painting to plan and execute a birthday party for my mother, which was last Saturday and was most successful and Monday the 18th we're leaving for Parrsboro, Nova Scotia. I'm looking forward to painting and posting from there. One more thing, the more subscribers I have the higher up my blog goes in the search engines so please subscribe and make sure to confirm in the email you'll receive from FeedBlitz...... and Thanks ;)
