Van Gogh painted this self-portrait in the winter of 1887–1888, when he had been living in Paris for nearly two years. Since his arrival in the city he had devoted much study to the dotted Pointillist technique, thereby learning how he might apply it in his own fashion. His use of brushstrokes running in a variety of directions created a self-portrait with a halo-like circle round his head. This variation and the dynamics it created were Van Gogh’s own contribution to the new style of painting. (Van Gogh Museum notice)
Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal - and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients! I want to share compelling and what I consider interesting things that get you thinking, enjoying, talking, learning and laughing. You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery and laser vision correction (although it seems like there’ll be a fair amount of music-related posts - they’re too much fun to make!) I also expect that we’ll have more contests and free stuff, special events and even very special guests! See ya later!
