Who doesn't love van Gogh. There is always something more to learn about the masters.
Researching a concept for a new van Gogh Art within Art painting I came across a photo
of a portrait that Gauguin painted of van Gogh. The concept I was going for was to take van Gogh's painting of his bedroom and redecorate it. Then when I saw the portrait of van Gogh I thought it would be cool to have Gauguin's portrait of van Gogh painting, inside of Vincent's bedroom...that makes two artists, then me painting them makes three - " Three Artists"
All of the paintings in the room are my take on van Goghs works as well as all of the vases of sunflowers in the room. He also did many paintings of his own shoes and boots so I thought his shoes on the floor were perfect. I've always liked working in this palette of colors, so warm!
This is the first 16 x 16 I have done and I am now working on a 16 x 20 and a
Peter Max commission of 30 x 24. A lot of work and a lot of fun!
