    Description:
       Van Gogh, of course, I'd already written one called Van Gogh though. I've always identified with him. I guess it's because of my depressive tendencies. I even had a dog attack me and nearly rip my ear off, so I identify with Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear most of all. Oddly, I think that's one of his few paintings that looks sad.

    Your work was illusion,
    method acting,
    for you rarely betrayed your sadness:
    visions of tireless optimism
    purged from a mad mind,
    but you preserved all of the beauty inside you,
    all of the brightness on canvas for us,
    and when it was all gone
    When blackness defeated color,
    you saw no need to stay.

      when I think about van Gogh I always think about this painting of the nightcafé (now don't ask me which name it had, can't remember). it's amazing. the bright yellow for the café and around it the black/blue night.
    I haven't studied van Gogh's biography but I can see you have. nicely summed up. good poem.

      I think it's great that you have honoured a talented artist and given something back to him, since he gives so much to us with his work. I don't know much about him, but I suppose this has been an informing read. I liked the flow of your poem, but maybe it could have been a bit longer.

      Your writes are always a pleaseure to read, but then a pain to try to improve. Reading this several times had effect what so ever, maybe that's what makes a good write? Nice work.

      hey, you should check out my short story called "Arles-en-Prvence". It's my ode to Vincent.

    this is very good. the light just flickered and he was overcome.

    this poem makes me wonder if your Guitar poem was about a Picasso painting...

      I know it's clichéd but I love stary night and also his sunflowers. I love sunflowers anyway. A beautiful tribute to the only impressionist I adore. Thanks
    peace
