Visiting Van Gogh Up Close

Visiting Van Gogh Up Close

Van Gogh up close, close up photos of van Gogh paintings

While at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday for the Jerusalem Exhibit, I made a pilgrimage to some of my favorite paintings by Van Gogh. The impasto nature of the brushstrokes on these works is what particularly draws me to them, and I wanted to study them up close. In this post you can see photos of my devoted examination of these precious paintings. I will be emulating his thicker, more textured use of oils in the coming year.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
