The snow has kept me inside enough that I have finished reading this book. It is a book of The Letters of Vincent van Gogh. Selected and Edited by Ronald de Leeuw. Translated by Arnold Pomerans.
One thing I enjoyed reading is that he exchanged art with other artists. I like the idea that we as artists are doing what the great ones did many years ago by trading our sketches, atcs, and paintings. Of course when you trade with me it isn't like you are trading with Gaugin, Monet etc. There are many interesting tidbits in the letters. It will certainly make you appreciate your life.
So if you think you would like to read this book leave me a comment on this post by Wednesday February 17th. I will put all the names in a hat and have my Dearly Beloved draw a name. I will ship it to the winner as a Valentine gift.
