Van Gogh birthday

March 29th is van Gogh’s birthday? No it is March 30th. Matters not but I admit I was incorrect! Our Chef can celebrate twice as a result. To celebrate we can produce an artwork with him in mind! Then show it to everyone!

Thank you, for starting such a fun post, Vincent! I’m a huge Van Gogh fan! I spent a weekend in Arles, France, a few years back and it was amazing! I can’t wait to see what others post.

Thank you Lucia, yes there are many things we can do to help Vincent’s van Gogh! On his own birthday! Pretty su re there is hardly an artist has not been in some way influenced by him and he his entire artistic family. Most of all was his passion for life that he craved and how he expressed with every brush stroke. Everyone can compose something, anything, with this passion and share it here! I am going to try.

Such a great post! Vincent Van Gogh I feel is somewhat under rated sadly. I agree that there are so many artists who have been influences and/or inspired by Vincent in some way. I hope to create a Van Gogh portrait and post it here. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing other artists renditions of this great artist.

Thank you Rick! Love your post as well and I apologize if I have over embellished my response. Today however it is Albert Einstein’s birthday! Pie day. Pi r square closest Calendar date to this number. Photographer Arthur Stieglitz photographed the most famous portrait known of Einstein.

Did not realize (remember?) 3.14 is Einstein's birthday. BS Physics probably should have known that!

Was thinking about van Gogh recently. Will give some thought to doing an a la.

Great idea!

Cheers, MAL

A portrait sketch done this afternoon.

'Starry Twilite?'

Limited palette and even more limited skills with a brush in hand(!). An attempt at 'Starry Night' with my usual arsenal of inks and watercolors on Yupo. A humble tip of the beret to the master.

Yes. in this line of creative thought Starry Night created off spring art works which like your painting is amazingly strong! We all love Starry Night and the Starry Twilight offers a future,
