The Heart of Such a Nobody

"What am I in the eyes of most people? A good-for-nothing, an eccentric and disagreeable man, somebody who has no position in society and never will have. Very well, even if that were true, I should want to show by my work what there is in the heart of such an eccentric man, of such a nobody."
~ Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890)

I thought of your piece from Sept 20th when this one opened on my screen this morning.

I like them both very much.

Ah, thank you. I'm flattered by any association at all with such a venerable artist!

Thanks for commenting. I'm a recent fan of your own blog. :-)
