It's always good to view a new work by an OLD MASTER.
This photo provided by the Kroeller Mueller Museum in Otterlo, Netherlands, Tuesday, March 20, 2012, shows a painting entitled "Still life with meadow flowers and roses" by Vincent van Gogh.
My understanding; is it takes at least five Authority Figures on a particular artist, all to concur that a discovered painting belongs to that particular artist, before it is declared an original.
Looks like this one passed the test.
I am amazed at the craftsmanship and composition, the muted tones, and light which Van Gogh captured in a timeless manner. Even though the painting is mellowed with age, the arrangement still feels fresh, and pure like they were gathered only a moment ago.
I am excited for the world, and recall the day I hopped over the barrier at Van Gogh's Asylum of St. Paul de Mausole, and laid my bones in Van Gogh's bed.
I did what I could, just to get into his head!
