Portraits of the Postman



 I was having trouble sleeping last night so I started flipping through an old art book on Van Gogh. He's always been one of my favorite artists and I was more than happy to reacquaint myself with his portraits Joseph Roulin, the postman. They may not be as iconic as Starry Night but they're definitely among my favorites. I love the vivid colors of the wallpaper in the background and his charming postal hat. I think I might need to track down a print and welcome Mr. Roulin into my home!


Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your comments!
