I opened the envelope, then the second one, and then the third. And surprise surprise, all three letters contained the same greeting card image! Was this a conspiracy or some peculiar plot hatched by my sisters?
What are the chances, receiving exactly the same greeting card of Van Gogh's Cafe At Night three times as a birthday greeting, especially when they were the only cards I had received that year.
As a painter I took this as a sign and decided my next project should be a cafe style painting.
There is something intriguingly engaging about a cafe and restaurant setting for a painting. The aim to capture the atmosphere and charm of people gathering together for food and drink in a public place, has inspired many artists over the centuries.
