Then I started thinking, I know just what he needed.... a dog! I have a great studio companion named Tasha. She gets me up when I sit too long, gets me out to play and generally keeps me company in the studio day and night.
Van Gogh's Dog
original by Peter Yesis
oil on canvas board
I imagine Van Gogh's life might have been a little better if he had a dog. Did he even paint a dog, I wonder? Anyway, as usual when I think about Vincent I tend to have fun and try and paint like him..... Not imitation, just inspiration. I wonder if he would enjoy hearing that?
