Caricature of Vincent Van Gogh (in his underwear)
Saturday Oct 8th through the morning of Monday Oct 10th 2011 I worked on a small 5x7" acrylic painting on Gessobord. I wanted to place Vincent in his iconic bedroom in his shorts painting. I chose to do a distorted fish eye like perspective to give the sense of .... insanity or something not quite right. Facebook friends suggested I put him in boxers with poka dots and I chose to make hearts because Vincent was someone who laid his heart out in the open to everyone he knew. Another suggestion I used that came from my facebook friends was to make the ceiling a "Starry Night". This took about 16 hrs to do.
