In keeping with my blog on Van Gogh in Yellow I went to see the movie Loving Vincent. This is the first fully painted animated feature film ever created.
I have always loved the intensity of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, the subjects he chooses, his thick brushstrokes and his use of colour. Born in Zundert, in the south of the Netherlands on the 30th March 1853, his tragic life was often misunderstood and he was seen by many as a mad man. However, he had a close relationship with his brother Theo.
A huge thank you to everyone who came to see our exhibition “Colour: A Personal Response.”
Welcome to my blog — a place where I share my inspiration and process for my textile art. Working on the last in the series of 12 this one was titled “O’Keeffe in Purple.” Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s close up of flowers I chose an orchid. It has so many lovely curves and movement and looks like a bird when you look at it closely. Georgia O’Keeffe stated “Nobody sees a flower—really—it is so small it takes time—we haven’t time—and to see takes time.”
