Description Another of of a series of paintings I have done over the years in which I incorporate my version of paintings by famous impressionists. In this case a still life with cornflowers on a table with an apple and pear and in the background the painting 'Young Peasant Woman with Straw Hat Sitting in the Wheat' by Vincent VanGogh.Vincent especially fascinates me because of his life, his trials and tribulation. I can relate to him in many ways. He was deeply concerned with justice and eventually ha became a vegetarian after visiting the abattoirs in the south of France.Because he was opinionated (can I ever relate to that ;-) he was often difficult to get along with but his heart was so good! His painting have the kind of grid and sincerity that is simply everlasting. The colors are often in such contrast to the grumpy person he could be. In many ways he had a childlike mind, but highly intelligent and a constant thinker, which of course left him vulnerable to the cruel realities of life and people. He really was a special light in the world. The latest on how he really came to be shot and eventually die, makes much more sense then the stories of suicide that never really made sense to me.

Quality Reproductions from my Original Paintings in Oil, Watercolor or Acrylics. I was born in Alsace France and from childhood on, I had Art and a Love for Nature in my blood. After moving to the Unites States I became a full time artist with collectors from all over the world. My roots are in impressionism. The style I developed comes from studies of the masters of Impressionism to the great trailblazers of modern art like Picasso. Some of my favorites are Nicolai Fechin & Van Gogh as well as Picasso, who could never be put in to a nice little box. From them I learned to follow my own drum beat and never stagnate but always start each painting as a new adventure. You won't see cookie cutter paintings here. Each painting is unique. ~Ginette
