Posting quickly before I get back to work:
Recently had an exhilarating phone call + review of my latest painting (which honestly looks the best presented in the hands of people dear to me):
"I'm serious babes, I've shown it to Cyvia and she says it's incredible work! I've shown this to people and I'm not joking everyone says this is an amazing painting. Nancy's currently out shopping for a frame...."
I drew inspiration from my tour at MFAH's Van Gogh exhibition with Cyvia Wolff its patron, Nancy Cook, and its curator David Bomford.
I intentionally used my higher education experience in painting and advice garnered from experienced painter friends to thoughtfully paint. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Included are Ken Jones's father's exceptionally composed watercolor and a Kodak Carousel projector, like from Mad Men.
Plus other good news that I'd like to keep secret is under way! 🥰🎨✨
EM BREVE: COM AMOR, VAN GOGH - UM SONHO IMPOSSÍVEL
Em breve veremos com detalhes a minuciosa jornada que levou dois cineastas apaixonados a alcançar um sonho que parecia impossível. Ambos criaram o primeiro longa totalmente pintado do mundo: Com Amor, Van Gogh (2017).

Artista:🇳🇱Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)
Van Gogh dipinse un grande numero di autoritratti durante la sua carriera artistica, e questo è considerato uno dei suoi più belli, se non addirittura il migliore. Fu realizzato nel settembre 1889 nel manicomio di Saint-Rhémy, quando il pittore s'era appena ristabilito da una lunga crisi di follia durata due mesi, e durante la quale tentò di uccidersi ingerendo i colori. A proposito di questa tela, Van Gogh scriverà al fratello Theo: "Noterai come l'espressione del mio viso sia più calma, sebbene a me pare che lo sguardo sia più instabile di prima".
Ed è appunto lo sguardo allucinato che colpisce subito, tanto da restare fissato in chi lo osserva. Ad esso va aggiunto il fondale formato da spirali grigio-verdi arrovellate, molto simili al fogliame dei cipressi dipinti in quel periodo, ma anche a fiamme di una fornace.
Da notare la perfezione nei tocchi, dove ogni singolo tratto denota il genio creativo dopo una crisi. Tutto risulta essere perfetto sia nella prospettiva che nelle sfumature dei colori.
Antonin Artaud, grande ammiratore dell'opera di Vincent, commentando quest'opera, dirà: "Uno sguardo che colpisce per immediatezza".
Artist:🇳🇱Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)
Van Gogh painted a large number of self-portraits during his artistic career, and this is considered one of his most beautiful, if not the best. It was made in September 1889 in the asylum of Saint-Rhémy, when the painter had just recovered from a long two-month crisis of madness, during which he attempted to kill himself by ingesting the colors.
“Love always brings difficulties, that is true, but the good side of it is it gives energy.” -Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent moved to Paris in 1886, after hearing from his brother Theo about the new, colourful style of French painting. Wasting no time, he tried it out in several self-portraits. He did this mostly to avoid having to pay for a model. Using rhythmic brushstrokes in striking colours, he portrayed himself here as a fashionably dressed Parisian (@rijksmuseum ) #vangogh#vincentvangogh#vincentvangoghlove#art#arte#lovingvincent

Cypresses with two female figures 1889. The slender cypress is a characteristic feature of the landscape in the southern French region of Provence. Van Gogh stayed there in 1889-1890, in a psychiatric hospital in Saint-Rémy (FR). He thought the cypresses were beautiful and compared their shape and proportions to those of an Egyptian obelisk.
He painted the trees with swirling brushstrokes in various shades of green and black, with an occasional touch of red for contrast. The colour of the trees was challenging – in a letter to his brother, Van Gogh called it 'that difficult shade of bottle green'.(@vangoghmuseum ) #vangogh#vincentvangogh#lovingvincent#vincentvangoghlove#art#arte
