Coloring the Van Gogh bedroom

After attending the exhibit of Van Gogh’s Bedrooms at The Art Institute of Chicago, I’ve become a bit obsessed with the museum itself and Van Gogh’s works.  As a life-long Chicago resident, the exhibit prompted me to become a member of the museum and I’m so glad I did!

My new obsession brought me to read more about Van Gogh and the book I’m currently reading.  It’s called, “The Yellow House: Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Nine Turbulent Weeks in Arles.”  The descriptions of Van Gogh and Gauguin’s works has me continually googling to see both painters’ works.

Since I’ve discovered adult coloring books, I’ve also found a new creative outlet and it has opened up the art world to me.

Lord knows, I’m not an artist, but coloring the Van Gogh bedroom has been a joyous experience.
