Vincent Van Gogh - Self portrait series

A man who painted for companionship to combat his loneliness

In this portrait, I felt, stiff, cold, small framed, agitated and troubled as I longed for recognition. I could no longer continue to bear my insecurities as a painter, and as an artist who was tormented in every way. My life spent in shambles. (At this moment I felt a connection, eerie, prophetical)

Vincent Van Gogh's heart was immense, yet he (foolishly) give it up to his love of painting, forever forgotten. His soul is protected.

What ever this means to you, I want to say thank you, thank you for your courage, for your motherland, and to your art, unknowingly, yet foretelling (to the world)
