Starry Night Painter. May 27, 2010

Here's my homage to Van Gogh.

Even though he wasn't allowed outside the walls of the Asylum at night, nor allowed to paint with candles during his internment, I chose to picture him from my experience; painting freely, his fascination of the nocturnal world.

I guess you could say we became kindred spirits of sorts.

I have one or two more paintings of him as a subject which I would like to do some day when I become a better, more mature artist. Until then, I will keep communing with the past masters, and listening to the silence.
