A recent story about Van Gogh reveals that the painting above is not a self portrait but actually a portrait of his brother. This is not the most exciting of news but I thought it would be a great time to showcase a great artist. Van Gogh has an interesting style that I find soothing, his painting and sketches showcase the emotions in nature through a rough brushstroke. I have this painting hung in my own home.
What is your favorite art to look at and what does it do for you? Every time I see this, it reminds me how I feel about my wife. I think about when we met and what these two in the lower right hand side are doing. They could have just stole that boat and are making their get away, the pre-modern Bonnie and Clyde. We can only imagine but that is the beauty, it leaves room for imagination no matter how simple or complex the work.
