Let's continue on the VVG theme. This is my Vincent Van Gogh wanna be painting. I just set up to have a little fun. The light of course moved off the bed just as I was ready to paint it. All of it except for the small patch that surrounds the door knob. Not every daily painting needs to be a serious attempt to capture truth, justice and the American way. I like how the painting invites you in for a nap.
