Trying to paint like Van Gogh

My painting

Flowering Garden with Path   July 1888
   Since I've been home from Paris my heart has been yearning for more art, so I went to the library and picked up a book on Van Gogh, and his complete paintings. As I looked through the book I saw this picture and it inspired me, so I thought to myself ...... "um I think I'll try painting this." Now the interesting thing is, I don't draw or paint. I tried  painting for the first time the other day and did a version of Starry Night. This was my second try at painting and I found I really enjoyed doing it. When I finished I told my husband "man this looks nothing like his". He laughed and said, "you know honey, he was a master painter". 


  1. It is quite spectacular that you never painted before & created this! It is a wonder how sometimes talents emerged from us that we never knew we had.....I think you have a natural touch with the arts.

  2. Thank you Denise. I know my husband asked me what happened in Paris. I think all the museums touched my soul.
