Kitty N. Wong, 2014.
Vincent Van Girl. Gouache and pencil on paper.
27 cm x 19 cm.

I've been working on this the last two nights, I had planned the background as simple polka dots and then it morphed into a sort of turtle shell pattern and then finally into a sort of homage to Starry Night.

Speaking of Van Gogh, I've been to this very cafe which he painted in Arles when I cycled through the little provincial town with an ex-boyfriend many years ago on bicycle trip through southern France.

Prints of this painting are now available on my Etsy shop.
