Art: Apprehensible by Artist Kristine Ashcraft
I have a print of "Wheatfield with Crows" by Vincent van Gogh in my living room (right next to "Starry Night"...big surprise there). I purchased it not because I liked the subject of the painting necessarily but because something about the colors and their pure separation from one another intrigued me. There is a sense of anxiety in the hurried brush strokes (something I can identify with being wrought with anxiety myself). I wanted to challenge myself with this painting. I never touch yellow paint to speak of and have only recently begun using orange shades. So I decided to "borrow" some of Vincent's bravery with his anxious yellow and go for it.
