A lot of my paintings was influenced by Van Gogh. I like his expressive brushstrokes, using of color, composition. You can see his influence through the history of art, from the Fauves  
and German Expressionists, Abstract Expressionists and to very contemporary artists. This is just one of his quotes “real painters do not paint things as they are… they paint them as themselves feel them to be”
