Catching Vincent

Here are a few quotes of his ...

"If you try to go beyond your interests just for the sake of pretensions or wealth, your art becomes less legitimate."

~Vincent {name removed so we don't show up on fan searches - sorry}
"Look, all you can do when you find your niche is go with it."

~Vincent {name removed so we don't show up on fan searches - sorry}

So, I am that much of a fan that I drove to a restaurant an hour away from my home to try to meet him ... twice!!! The FIRST VENTURE was fun, but ultimately unsuccessful. However, luck was on my side the second try and ... Voila ... we have met. I have shook his hand and told him how much I admire his work. And, I did so in my silly, giddy schoolgirlish way!
And to boot, I am actually posting a photo of myself with a slightly crazed look on my face and an annoying appearance from my double chin (usually I can find a way to hide it - but I was too stinkin' nervous to care). I am usually much more selective in what images of me make it out into public terrains, but seriously ... how could I NOT post this? And fyi, Bert has totally forgiven me for letting another man put his arm around me! Don't worry, I won't be making a habit of it, except he is coming to Utah again in April for a fundraising event ... hmmmmmmm!
So worth it!!!
And if you don't know who he is, THIS will tell you everything you need to know!

Good for you and how exciting! I think your photo looks great! There are a LOT of Vincent fans out there who are both happy for you and just a wee bit envious. Thanks for sharing.

Good for you. If I lived in the US, I'd probably end up as his stalker!

I'm hardly jealous of you at all. Really. Honestly.
