I started this portrait of Marilyn a couple weeks back but then my youngest daughter got hit with Pneumonia. I have been so busy caring for her ( not to mention a few day hospital stay in there too) I find I am just so tired every evening I don’t even sit down and pick up a pencil. Every day I say to myself that this is the night I am getting back in the every night drawing habit. Well,its good in theory…maybe tomorrow….sigh
“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”
– Vincent van Gogh, Dutch, painter
Van Gogh sells for $61.8 million
A rare piece of artwork painted by Vincent van Gogh weeks before his death sold for $61.8 million.
Van Gogh’s 1890 painting, ‘Still Life, Vase With Daisies and Poppies,’ had expected to fetch between $30 million and $50 million at Sotheby’s evening sale in Manhattan.
Van Gogh painted the bouquet of wildflowers at the French home of his physician, Dr. Paul Gachet, in 1890. It’s one of the few works the Dutch artist sold during his lifetime.
