I just keep drawing Vincent for some reason. I think it's because he inspires so many of us in our pursuits of art. Who knows. He definitely had a part in my returning to drawing a few years ago. I would wander around in museums, aimlessly gawking here and there, until suddenly I'd find myself in a room with some of his paintings. I didn't want to leave. I could just stare at those paintings forever. There was something behind each one, a passion you just didn't see in so many other paintings. Every now and then I find another artist who captivates in a similar way. It's what drives us all, I think, to keep at it.
