The Lines of Vincent:

"It had struck me how firmly the saplings were rooted in the ground - I started on them with the brush, but because the ground was already impasted, brush-strokes simply vanished into it. Then I squeezed the roots and trunks in from the tube and modelled them a little with the brush."
Letter to Theo van Gogh, 3 September 1882.

Today is a day for admiring someone else's brush strokes.  I am pulled into this piece and I am hungry.
