Iris Chair, Wheatfields With Crows and Second Self-Portrait




My "Iris Chair" is finished and hanging on the studio wall along with the "Wheatfields With Crows." Here are some detail photos to see the brushstrokes. I really study Vincent's paintings and try to emulate his style. Although, when viewing the 10-year span of van Gogh's work-- you can see a number of different styles he experimented with, and the different artists he studied and styles he attempted to emulate.

I really like this painting, and not sure I'm going to sell it.

And here is the second in the series I am doing, based on Vincent's self-portraits, each in a very different style. This one really pushes the dark-light contrasts, also painted in very thick, quick impasto strokes.

That is the bed on the left and piled-up laundry on the right. Could have something to do with the look on my face!
