Sketch of the day ~ Provence Parlor Lore

Provence Parlor Lore #1 ~ Sketch by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

This sketch had two sources of inspiration. The first was a photograph of a dark-gray tabby cat named Mercury taken by my friend Jackie in her angular apartment. The other was Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting of his bedroom at Arles in 1888.

I’m a big fan of Van Gogh (and cats too of course), so I’m eager to see how this imagined parlor from 19th century Provence translates into a watercolor. Stay tuned!

Title: Provence Parlor Lore
