A Week of Vincent Van Gogh

Years ago my teacher, Leo Manso, looked at the little book in which I was making notes and pasting random images and said, "This is a playground for you." I took him at his word and kept at it.

Eventually I started working on my yearly appointment books. Last week I browsed through 1999 and found a celebration of Vincent Van Gogh. In that year both the National Gallery and the Los Angeles County Museum held major exhibitions and they must have spent a fortune on their advertising; the magazines were full of these gorgeous reproductions of his paintings. I really went to town. A playground indeed.

Then I made this collage with several etchings and a drawing. It's titled
