Haunting


I cannot tell you why I love this painting above all other Gogh works.
Why I like this painting, described by Francis Bacon(another artist) as, "haunting."
Perhaps it's the colors. Perhaps it's the artist's face peeking out behind the brim.

Thanks goes to Wikipedia and Gardner's Art through the Ages for providing information, images and inspiration.

i've walked for hours in Arles during my visit there. Along the paths, no car. I can imagine carrying all that equipment, trying not to lose the light. I was there not knowing french, a bit alienated also. I didn't walk as far as he seems to bar to Tarascon.

On the map it looks like a few hours walk with nothing but your thoughts to accompany you.
