Vincent van Gogh was the first artist I ever became a "fan" after I became old enough to talk. I was too young then to say why I liked van Gogh, but perhaps I could easily recognize his paintings by his brushwork. Well, but all the famous artists have their distinctiveness...so why did I like Gogh so much? I think and will think why I was attracted to his work every time I see his artwork. The van Gogh's exhibit was great!
