Vincent

 

After another year of work I shall perhaps attain command of myself from the artistic point of view.   And that is always a thing worth seeking. But for that I must have some luck.”   -To his brother Theo May 1889-May 1890         Vincent spent time as a patient at Saint-Remy in France

Vincent van Gogh is one of my favorite peeps, you could say he is  my brother from another mother.  Vincent did not have the luxury of an easy life,  but he chose painting above all.

I love Vincent for his quick color wit and the volumes of letters he wrote to his real brother, Theo.  To see a little of what I am talking about, check the link below.
