I haven't painted in the past few days. Have been busy with taxes and other things. Hope to be able to carve out some time tomorrow. Spent a nice couple of hours this morning in Denver at, Meininger Art Supply. What a great store. It is like going to art supply heaven. There is so much to see you get dizzy.
Since I am not painting today, I thought I would inject a bit of humor thanks to that wise sage, Father Guido Sarducci.
This is based on a photo I took of a woman in the Denver Art Museum. I have taken great liberty with the color of the walls, (they were white) and some of the lighting, but hey, that's why we paint, so we can present our own view of our small corner of the world.
Saint-Remy Lavender Field 8 x 10 inches Oil on wood panel.
This is a view of a lavender field near Saint-Paul hospital, the asylum where Vincent Van Gogh stayed from May 1889 to May 1890, in Saint-Rémy de Provence. Vincent painted 143 paintings in and around the hospital.
Ironically, I found out after I posted this earlier, that today is Vincent's birthday. He would be 156 today. Happy Birthday, Vincent!
