Landscape with Snow (1888)

Landscape with Snow (1888)
Painted in February of 1888, Van Gogh painted the dreary furrowed fields of winter. A lone figure with his dog trudge toward home. Located in the Guggenheim, I was moved to view this painting this past weekend.

Bradley Walker Tomlin

Happy Birthday Bradley Walker Tomlin!! American Abstract Expressionist painter, born in 1899, Tomlin wanted to be an artist beginning in high school. He studied art in Syracuse, New York, at the College of Fine Arts, then further in Paris, France. He seemed to constantly strive toward perfection where his forms would realize inner harmony. It is thought his work did finally reach that point in the last 5 years of his life. The painting below was created in 1949. The overall pattern of interlocking, overlaid, intersecting ribbons lends a calm, soothing peaceful feel to the abstract work.
