Summer Days

Its been a long hot summer–too hot for forge work.  But I did manage to do a little plasma cutting, welding and painting for the sunflower.  Vincent Van Gogh painted a lot of these in France before he went crazy and cut off his ear.  Seems a bit harsh if you don’t like your painting.  Now they speculate from new evidence that he was accidentally murdered  by some kids in his village and didn’t commit suicide.  We’ll never know I guess.  I do agree with the premise of who would ever give or sell a gun to Van Gogh given his know mental state.
