"I hope I shall be able to make some drawings in which there is something human." - Vincent van Gogh.
I have a personal love for interior scenes - they give a sense of daily life and what it may feel like to have lived in a certain place and time. For me, they can be a vehicle of time travel - if you will... depending how long I gaze at a painting. It's funny how many interior scenes are timeless except for the differences in clothing fashions.

Hi Willow -
Thanks so much...I think these 2 images are not nearly as common as most of his paintings. I really enjoy your blog and am so happy you dropped by!
