Artsy Fartsy- Tuesday's Feature


So I am a bit too lazy and intellectually drained to do a real feature this week. Instead, I have decided to feature some art from my favorite artist, VanGogh. I know everyone has already seen this art as it is widely known. However, everytime I look at it, I get some inspiration and happiness.

I thought I would share some of my favorite pieces with you on my intellectually dead day. Who knows maybe it will inspire me to actually accomplish something at work today.

This is his most popular painting and it is my 2nd favorite. It is such a different take on a night landscape, I love it.

This is my favorite panting of his. I love it because I love sunflowers, as you all probably could tell. However, I love that his are not perfect, you can see some are wilting. I love when artists exhibit the imperfections.

"Still Life with Earthenware and Bottles"
This is one I discovered as I was going through the gallery. It stood out to me for some reason. I just love how realistic it looks, I can imagine myself in that kitchen cooking something. I love how perfect the lines are and the shadows are great. 

Hope you have a fantastic day!     


  1. Ahh Aimee, I love Vincent's work too. Can you believe he never sold a painting in his lifetime? Not one. He probably would never have believed he would one day be so very famous. I am greatly inspired by his work and wanted to thank you for spot-lighting these pieces.

    Blessings, Joy and Tuesday Sunshine, Terri

  2. Beautiful! I was thinking of you today...I heard on the radio that there were some aftershocks. Hope you guys are doing okay!
