Reinvent-tage Day 18 - Part 2

Today's Intention...experiment by failure...try stuff...


above is the almost finished vincent...my copy of van gogh's self-portrait (to see the original please scroll down to my first October 16th post...to see progress photos scroll to the 2nd October 16th post))...I worked on the right eye (left side of face) and the beard more...I completely repainted the background...perhaps I will lighten it though...and then detailed the clothing...below is a close up of the face...



since I could not upload photos yesterday...this is today's work...tomorrow I leave for Chicago to teach a business workshop to 16 artists...I will try to post if I have access to Internet...I have the posts done, but I have to post them...

That's right! You're so close to me, I wish I could stop by. I have sick kids right now so it probably wouldn't be a good idea. But I love how your Van Gogh turned out! Say, what do you do with all this artwork that you're working on everyday? Blessings... Polly

You are a busy busy girl! Enjoy your trip.

Isn't there something fun and incredibly therapeutic in copying the 'masters'? I always enjoy it.

I've GOT to follow your advice; I've got dozens of books, but can't seem to break the fear of starting out to do something!

Love the background, I definitely got the "starry night" feel from it. Wish I could be at your workshop, sounds like you have a wealth of information to share. Thanks for the supportive post on my blog, I appreciate you checking in. Sometimes you are the only one who dares to leave a comment.

This is excellent!

I can see the torture in his eyes.
Such a sad story and fate, and of course... in true ironic spirit, such a brilliant artist.
