Waking Up With Van Gogh

Asheville artist Moni Hill has spent the last year and a half organizing a show for the Hickory Museum of Art. She asked more than 70 Western North Carolina artist to create one piece based on their reaction to Van Gogh's Bedroom In Arles.

After painting all those dogs for the Dog Show at Blue Spiral I still had dogs on the brain. That and memories of my visit last May to see the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. There I was completely awed by Van Gogh's Portrait of the Postman Joseph Roulin. His use of color and pattern left a lasting impression. So here you have Cogswell's Life Goes On.
