Gotta Van Gogh

One of my favorite paintings in the Chicago Art Institute, from one of my favorite painters of all time. This photo really shows off the qualities that I love about Van Gogh's work. The use of intense color and thick luscious brush strokes. Everyone should do their own self portrait, whether it's just in pencil, crayon, fingerpaints, or even ShrinkyDinks!! Give it a shot. You may learn something about yourself. Hopefully more than just that your left ear is crooked.
