Vincent VanGogh Sunflowers and Pears

I was fortunate to visit France a few years ago and did travel to the area in the South of France where the Yellow House in Arles where Vincent and Gauguin lived together for a brief time. So when this challenge came up it was just what I was looking for. The most commonly known facts about Vincent Van Gogh are that he cut off his left ear and presented it to a prostitute, that he sold only one painting during his lifetime and that he committed suicide. I highly suggest reading the Yellow House by Martin Gayford it is wonderfully written.Vincent van Gogh. His wonderful, unique style of painting seems like it would be a lot of fun to emulate. This is why it was picked for Challenge Number Eight at Follow the Masters.

I have put lots of texture into this painting. It is much larger then my normal daily work because I have been working on it for a few days. The painting is 14x11 with heavy impasto.
