My Sunflowers Are His, In A Way.....

Sunflower Symphony • Sandy Sandy • Tabernacle, NJ 2016
“The sunflower is mine, in a way."
~ Vincent van Gogh

Sunflowers • Van Gogh • Arles, January 1889
The painting is part of the Van Gogh Museum Collection in Amsterdam.

“It is with the reading of books the same as with looking at pictures; one must,
without doubt, without hesitations, with assurance, admire what is beautiful.”
~ Vincent Van Gogh 

A large print of this painting hung in the house of one of my childhood friends.
I found myself admiring it every time I visited.

A few years ago we had a sunflower workshop. See the video HERE.

Very Van Gogh

“I feel such a creative force in me:
I am convinced that there will be a time when,
let us say, I will make something good every day,
on a regular basis....
I am doing my very best to make every effort because
I am longing so much to make beautiful things. 
But beautiful things mean painstaking work,
disappointment, and perseverance.”
Vincent Van Gogh 

Vincent van Gogh ~ Starry Night 1889
I have been inspired by van Gogh since I was a kid and I'm sure he has influenced
my work in more ways than I realize or more than any living artist or teacher has in my lifetime.

I have given several workshops (Live and Online), using Vincent as my Muse.
I LOVE YOU Vincent! Thanks for your continued inspiration for my journey!
See a VERY short demo on YouTube HERE.

Have a Very Inspired Day and Happy Creating!
