Beyond Van Gogh
I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.
“A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke”
I know … I know. Nobody wants to read all that.
Be patient. The best is yet to come.

His letters are indeed very deep. I was given the two volume set of them by Leonard Nimoy when we the one man show VINCENT to bed. They are not something you can skim through.
Amazing Don! He and Theo had the strong bond that only brothers can know. And you have been favoured to meet such Artists as Leonard Nimoy. It is not luck of course – as you have somewhere earned such privilege.
“A one-man filmed play of Leonard Nimoy’s adaptation of “Van Gogh” (1979) by Phillip Stephens.” it’s stated.
I would love to see this among the many attempts to delve his works by such as Kirk Douglas, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Defoe – and others. I will seek this out.
I ♥ VVG. What a fun musueum. I’m jealous…The paintings I’ve seen in person are so brilliant. He did not mix his colors (so I’ve heard), and he put so much paint on the canvas that it took on a 2 dimentional look. It certainly added movement and that’s what I love about his paintings. They shimmer when you look at them.
A very interesting and Spiritual person. Tragically killed himself at age 37. So young. Can we imagine how much more of his genius we could have had? I have never seen any of his works in the flesh – and that will likely not happen. But from afar I can love his work.
Very fortunately a couple of people rescued his letters and most of his paintings. Otherwise he too would likely have vanished into oblivion like so many Artists have. He does inspire us – his quotes and wonderful Art though …
