An Ear For A Skirt ~ Van Gogh Comes A Callin'...



I very much appreciate this recognition from Roger at Idaho Daily Photo, who created the Van Gogh's Ear Award honoring the "art" of blogging creativity.

Inspiration of the Van Gogh's Ear Award as told by Roger -
You may know the story of Vincent Van Gogh a well known artist in history. Although a brilliant painter in his later years went quite insane he received the nickname of fou roux ("the redheaded madman"). The most bazaar of Vincent's behavior is when he cut off the lower part of his own left ear lobe, which he wrapped in newspaper and gave to a prostitute named Rachel in the local brothel, asking her to "keep this object carefully. After this he suffered recurrent bouts of mental illness, which led to his suicide July 29, 1890 he was 37 years old. His works of art are priceless.

The point of this award
We are all artist in are own way be it art, photography, writing, philosophy, comedy, blogging and we all go a little crazy sometimes. But if you ever feel so crazy to cut off your ear and give it to a prostitute "Seek Help"!

Thank you for this honor, Roger. You have shown us your awesome creativity with photography and peace globes extraordinaire throughout the blogosphere.
Roger's November, 2008 peace globe is at the top of this post.
