Van Gogh Journal Pages 1 & 2

 

Hello Friends!

In my last post I showed a video of an art journal I began making from a book I have of Vincent van Gogh’s portraits. I had read it many times and thought it would be a great book to make into an art journal!

So the other day I began by gluing this colorful tissue paper over the copyright page. I like the way the print shows through a little bit. Then I used white Liquitex Gesso to cover some writing under the page with his first name. I decided I wanted to paint a quote of his underneath it which says:

“I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say ‘He feels deeply and tenderly.'”

I love his words. Vincent was such a beautiful soul. He may have had what doctors now call bipolar disorder. He certainly went through long deep depressions and was hospitalized a few times. But he did not cut off his whole ear like some still think; he only cut off the tip! I think that story has been embellished ever since it happened.

I love reading his letters to his brother Theo, too. I feel sad, though, that although Theo supported him financially, he was never able to sell any of Vincent’s art. It seems like the art curators at the time just didn’t take Vincent seriously, and judged him for the state of his mental health. So he was just one of those brilliant souls who didn’t “fit in.”

Lately, I have been thinking that I really want to get back to creating what I feel is in my soul, not just doing the assignments in my art classes. Although, I am grateful for them, and have learned a great deal, I just don’t feel like I have to do every single assignment in both of my classes this year! So I have decided to pick and choose and to do what inspires me.

I am here to also encourage and inspire others to follow your heart and create what YOU love!

Have a wonderful day! 🙂

 

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

    • Thank you! Really? That would be great! I really don’t have any others except the drawing and writing ones you sent me long time ago! And I am doing other stuff in those. I needed a hard cover for this which is what I prefer. Thanks, Jill! 😁
