I fell in love with Van Gogh in high school. Tortured artist, utterly unique, strange and socially awkward - what teenage girl wouldn't be all over that. Seriously, I can still remember the joy of seeing his work in person for the first time. I mean to think you can see and be just a few feet away from a painting that the real artist created, it blows my mind to grasp it.
I really want to explore more of his paintings in my beads, but for now I keep coming up with new designs from my favorite, his Starry Night. Katie Hacker sent me a few of her Katiedids to play with and I immediate thought - toggle!
