A Huge Presence in a Small Bed. May 20, 2010
Well, this was Van Gogh's bedroom. This was Van Gogh's Bed. What the hell was going through his head?
I hopped in his bed and put my feet up. Dang, short! No room to stretch! He must have been 5'2, or else he'd be forced to sleep in the fetal position for eighteen months.
My Artist Mentor, Dan McCaw use to say, "You should be able to paint inside a phone booth- if you have to".
Well, these confined quarters would have definitely tested my claustrophobic fears.
Lying there in Van Gogh's bed, I was all ears...
