“Research casts a new light on van Gogh’s work, in an exhibition of the artist’s development at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.”
They look like they had a great time!
This is a great interview! Very inspiring!
One of the things I missed in all the years I attended school for my degrees (which was 22 years - YIKES!) was I never took an art class (aside from one photography class) and NEVER had an art history class. Additionally, later on with work and other commitments, I didn’t make the time to educate myself on art either. So, sad to say, I’m pretty ignorant about art except for recognizing familiar names like “Warhol”. One of the things I’ve appreciated about JLY’s Tumblr is his posting of various works of art. Each time I see a work and the name of the artist, I go and search the internet and learn a little about the work and the artist. I’ve learned so much….there was one (Victor Vasarely, I think it was?) where some of his work looked like it was influenced by Gestalt theory. I love learning not only about the art, but the lives of the artists and how they came to see the world the way they did. Fascinating. Anyway, I feel like I’m getting the art education I never had the time to get before. Better late than never :-). With sincere thanks and appreciation, JLY!
My next goal is to start going to local L.A. museums and get even more educated about art. And actually get to see some of them in person! Should be fun and informative at the same time.

Try, Try Again: Rejection Letters Received by Bestselling Authors For writers, getting rejected can seem like a pastime. But don’t take my word for it, even though I’ve gotten my share of no-thank-yous. These best-selling authors were rejected, too, and some not very kindly. Editors, publishers and agents have made big errors in judgment, as evidenced by the list of unkind (and sometimes needlessly rude) rejections received by these famous writers.
