This year it is 125 years since Vincent van Gogh died. Therefore In The Netherlands there are several van Gogh contests. I made this one for one of them. It is after his selfportrait with shaven face around 1889.
I painted it in my style. Acrylics on canvas, 20x20", C&C welcome!

That's a great job and a nice style. I'm sure Vincent would be chuffed.

Really like this interpretation in your style Connie - and you've portrayed the torment of his soul extremely well.

I think Vincent would be happy with how you have remembered him and have painted him. Good luck in the competition.

Wonderful painting. And painting it in your style instead of in his is a great idea.
