David Hockney in homage to Van Gogh

I saw this gem at the van Gogh Institute in Arles, where various artists painted or photographed visions inspired by Vincent.
We are all working in a matrix of information, we borrow and "copy" and share our creative ideas in our work. . . . I am so excited to be teaching again this Fall at the Evergreen Art Center, and I know I will learn so much from my students.
Especially in our journals, we can try each others techniques, make some messes, explore the boundaries of what we think is safe and looks good, just see where it takes us. Art can be an adventure!

"We live in an age where the artist is forgotten. He is a researcher. I see myself that way." --David Hockney
