Van Gogh

"As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed." "Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well." "What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?" "The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic that to love others." "I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.'" Pencil on paper

Wonderful capture of Van Gogh! I'm so impressed with his artwork and sadened by his hard short life. I have visited Arles in France and I want to go there again to feel his inspiration.
