Sun Up, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

I am getting myself ready to go and see the Van Gogh IMAX movie this weekend. At lunch I have been pouring over (and reading) a book called Van Gogh's Flowers by Judith Bumpus. It contains many Floral paintings by Vincent (we are on a first name bases...) that I do not remember seeing anywhere else. He was a very prolific painter, and even did copies of his own sunflowers, but not exactly... you can never reproduce the exact same brush stroke hard as you try, there will always be a slight variation in colour tone and or mark making. This fact is precisely what makes each painting unique and special.

are 8x10, oil on canvas.
