Thirty Paintings in 30 Days Painting Challenge - Day 18

                 Vincent's Chair
                         6" x 6"

"You can't be at the pole and the equator at the same time. You must choose you own line, as I hope to do, and it will probably be color."   
Vincent Van Gogh - writer, artist, genius

Adding to my Vincent series, I painted this yellow chair, which mimics that of Vincent's painting.

Often touching and witty, his writing gave invaluable insight into the life of one of the  greatest  artists who ever lived. 

His art reached an unsurpassable peak of intensity and originality, which can be described as unprecedented progress within ten years.

Vincent's brother Theo said, the only other artist to whom he could compare Vincent to was Beethoven, and if your surprised about that, both artists continue indefinitely to excite and engage the widest imaginable audience.

Here's the bonus: if your hooked on trivia crack maybe all this info isn't  so useless... Just a thought!
