Impressionism Artist of the Week - Vincent Van Gogh

I know, I know, VVG is post impressionism. But that would have messed up my weekly header from auto prefill. And I can't do that because that would break up my routine. That would be like not drinking coffee in the AM. Which isn't right either. Back to our featured artist. Van Gogh. This is a little know piece called Orchard with Blossoming Plum Trees
(1888). I love it. Click on the image and study the brush strokes on this one. It will teach you something.

We have Van Gogh's Bedroom at Arles (verson three) hanging above our bed. Got the print at Musee D'Orsay where the painting hangs.
I like hanging art in plces they were painted--I also have what I believe is a Degas from the bath series in the bathroom, but I CANNOT find the damn peice anywhere online, so I'm not sure that's who it is.
