Van Gogh Journal Pages 3 & 4

 

Hello Friends!

Here is another journal page spread. I wanted to have them be a contrast of monochrome and color. The photo of Vincent on the left-hand page is said to have been taken of him when he was between 16 and 20 years old. And even then his eyes look intense to me. The surrounding pieces of text are from various places in his letters. I have a book of many of his letters to Theo. Last year when I was working on another project, I copied some, and “aged” them by painting tea over them and letting them dry. They wrinkled some, but not all of them look as aged as I would have liked. I need to do some more at some point.

On the right-hand page I painted the page with acrylics first, then glued one of his self-portraits and some random ephemera on there along with a another photo of Vincent when he was about seven years old that was in the book. And again, he looks so intense! Perhaps he didn’t want his picture taken that day! Ha ha!

I will have more journal pages to come for some time since there are many pages left. So I will share the journey here. I already have the next page planned which is something I wrote and drew. Stay tuned and stay safe and well!

Have a wonderful day! 🙂

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! :)
