Artist's Description

I imagined a fine visit from darling Vincent VanGogh to my carriage house in Brooklyn one clear spring morning. He was very cordial, we spoke for many hours about painting and color and how plants wave in the wind, fabulous wind. Blackbirds. Cypress trees. Incredible day filled with enlightenment.

I don’t remember how it ended, we drank a lot of port, pernod, and ate herring. I went out to an Italian bakery at some point to introduce him to Stromboli bread, cheese and sausage baked in the loaf.

He said he admired my work. And of course, I couldn’t stop talking about how much he’d changed my life and eye.

Van Gogh was a friend to me from the first day I met him through his work, and his letters. He is my friend now. Of course he visits me.
