exhibition "Van Gogh Up Close," the late works of my hero, Vincent van Gogh.
Like me, Vincent loved painting "en Plein Air," surrounded by nature, and the opportunity to respond not only to the visual, but the sounds, the smells, and the vagaries of weather.
Most of the paintings in this exhibition are ones I've never seen as originals. Vincent's art and dedication never cease to inspire me.
Eduard Charlemont. When I was an art student at PCA back in the sixties, I discovered this magnificent image almost hidden behind a door, at the top of a stairwell. Happily some enlightened curator eventually moved it to its current place of prominence, for all to enjoy.
As I did on this Saturday, having a date with myself.
