Prompt: One day, your favourite piece of art- a famous painting or sculpture, the graffiti next door – comes to life. What happens next?
(Thanks for inspiring this prompt, Jen Baxter!)
Yesterday when I read this prompt I had nothing that I could think about. Today, in a fraction of a second I thought this:
My favourite piece of art is a self portrait of Vincent van Gogh & if that one painting had to come to life, it would be an unimaginable moment. I would spend time just listening to this great soul & watch him paint.
Probably his struggle is what attracts me towards this great painter. I don’t follow paintings much, but when I read the book ‘Lust for Life’ by Irving Stone, I started searching for his paintings and obviously found them on the net.
His paintings are truly wonderful and this self portrait is my favourite.
