So I recently read a book about Vincent Van Gogh.
This is the story about Vincent Van Gogh and (mostly) about his life in Arles, France. Van Gogh moved to Arles towards the end of his short life and besides creating many of his most famous paintings, he tried to create an artist colony. Paul Gauguin was the only artist he attracted, and that did not last very long.
But this book is also the story of Bernadette Murphy and how she discovered the actual story of the famous cutting off his ear story. It was a fascinating piece of detective work, and the author's style was quite readable. I really enjoyed this book.
Besides reading, I have also been doing some stash cleaning lately, doing a little here and a little there. To my surprise, I came across a couple of Van Gogh stickers that I had bought several years ago the Art Institute in Chicago and forgotten I had. What a great art museum that place is, but I won't get off track.
So I decided to use those stickers to make a page in my calendar journal.
I stamped the sunflower, painted it and added it to my page, and then I wrote in a Van Gogh quote.
No fancy backgrounds, but I still am happy with the page.
So we're getting closer to the weekend. The weeks been flying by but it always seems to slow down right before a vacation begins. We shall see.
Hope everyone has a fantastic day-and thanks for stopping by my blog.
