PAINTING WORDS Unkempt children with dirty feet, weary peasants, plodding streets. Weathered hands and pallid faces, living on faith, in dowdiest of places. Concern flickered in his attentive eyes, wishing to paint ‘lives’ in their true light. An inspired, sensitive and visionary man, the power of his heart, held in his hands. Words of colour, stroked from his brush, immersed in nature, an emotional must. A palette betwixt the colourful and dark, an ingenious master in the tender of art. Illuminate paints, in quest to understand, infinity of life in Gods magnificent lands. Casting artful eyes over natures scenery, sensing the harmony, of universe clearly. Breathing the frequency of existence into air, time was stilled, portrayed in magical flares. Forward thinking and a way ahead of time, colouring enthusiasm between his lines. Painting coloured words, to what he saw, influenced by Charles Dickens, gift to poor. The passion of his starry eyed expression, were epileptic traits of spiritual impressions. Laden with creations, meaningful treasures, awe inspiring legacies, akin to your pleasures. Victoria Healing ~ 18.104.22.1681 Painting Words
Vincent van Gogh absolutely loved Charles Dickens
Vincent wanted to “Paint what Dickens had done with his words”
Van Gogh was an avid reader and admirer of Charles Dickens. He remained devoted to the Victorian author throughout his life.
In a letter to his brother Theo, Vincent wrote of his ‘Irresistible passion for books’ and that the study of literature was as essential to him as his daily bread. Van Gogh created albums for his family and friends, containing poems and prose he selected himself.
Vincent collected images of everything that appealed to him, pretty much like his own Pinterest.
Similarities in the personality traits of famous people who have epilepsy.
Would it be a ‘coincidence’ that both Vincent van Gogh and Charles Dickens both had epilepsy and were obsessive artists and writers? They each had the typical clingy emotional personality and were fascinated with spirituality and religion
