Letter to Holland (In Progress)…


I know you guys pine for my longer posts, but I am so busy today! I’ve got a Jan. 6 deadline for a new client and I’ve put all other projects on hold until I’m finished. Hopefully by mid-February I’ll be able to share the big news about this latest job!

But I haven’t forgotten you, and I thought we could all use a breath of Spring, so here’s a quick look at an oil painting I’m trying to finish before the crocuses peek up from the snow!

I call it “Letter to Holland”, it’s 16×20″ on canvas. I’d say I’m half finished.

Here are some details…

    Really nice, Kathy…love the details (including the 3-cent stamp).

  2. Thanks, Kerry! I wasn’t gonna say anything, but I’ll go ahead and confess. The idea behind the painting is that I’ve often thought about how lonely Van Gogh must have been. He had such heartbreakingly bad luck with women, but he just kept trying.

    So I thought…what if Van Gogh had some lady who really loved him, and she was writing him a letter? So that’s what I was thinking about. 🙂
