Art & Bed. Ode to Van Gogh.

A magnet I bought in 2005 at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam bears this quote from the artist under an image of The Bedroom, 1888, Oil on Canvas, 72 X 90 cm.

"The best pictures are those one dreams about while smoking a pipe in bed, but which never get done." 

Tonight I fought my desire to dream up art I wanted to make but didn't. Tonight I finally have an answer for Vincent...

The best nights of sleep are the ones I will forget I missed because I was up making art.
