Art trivia anyone?

As you know, Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings most of them in the last two years of his life in France, where he died. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterized by bold colors and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. His suicide at 37 followed years of mental illness and poverty.

How many paintings did Vincent Van Gogh sell during his lifetime? Do you think it was 

  1. Thirty-two
  2. Three hundred twelve
  3. One
  4. Over four hundred

Tune in May 12 for the answer :-)

Here's a little inspiration

While exploring advice from professional bloggers about blogging, I ran across this piece by writer, Jeff Goins, about his personal transformation as a writer.

It’s a quick read. You will find it at https://goinswriter.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/The-Writers-Manifesto.pdf Let me know what you think. Joyce

I'm at Providence Hospital being prepared to go home tomorrow after hip replacement surgery yesterday. Every single person on the staff has been fantastic – caring, competent, and warmly friendly.
