Van Gogh Gone Wrong by Skailla Van Gogh Gone Wrong by Skailla
Van Gogh was painting passionately that summer afternoon. Completely possessed by his work, he put all his emotions into every brush stroke, creating the most amazing and vivid tones, giving life to the beauties in his mind. When suddenly... SPLASH! Green paint went everywhere. Even the sunflowers he had picked that day couldn't be helped!
Poor Van Gogh, perhaps it would be better to slow down next time!


I have serious problems.
It can't be helped xD

Anyway, you probably wasn't expecting anything like that from me, like, EVER. But believe me, I wasn't either!
I've never been very found of Van Gogh, I've gotta admit. Most of what kept me from liking him was the thought that he had ended with his own life, and that's certainly something I do not approve of.
But that was only until I got to read an incredible story about him which came out in a magazine about two years ago. There, it announced that Vincent did not kill himself. He was actually killed accidentally by two boys who were already known for bullying him, when they had the brightest idea of shooting with a pistol to scare the artist, while he was at the wheat fields. Van Gogh only died 2 days after the incident, and took the blame claiming that he was the one who had shot himself, so that the boys wouldn't get in trouble.
I couldn't find this specific article, but here's a very similar one: [link]

This little story truly got me, and I embarked in a quest to find out more and more about this artist. Why would he take the blame for them? What if this is not the only controversy about his life? a thousand questions hit my mind, and I looked for every single answer. I've researched SO much about him that I ended up knowing from the biggest of legends until the most ordinary facts about his life. And I've gotta tell you, this was probably the most intriguing researches I have ever made!

And the more I read about him, the more I realize who he truly was. NOT who the media wanted him to be, but his true self.

And I love him after that. He had such a loving heart, what a wonderful person. A misunderstood genius. Is there anything sadder than that?

BLAH, I want to share all the stuff I found out about him with you guys, but I'm already blabbing too much here! I'm so sorry!
I'll have another opportunity to talk about that later, I hope!


Anyways, I wanted to thank every single one of you who supported me in my last deviation. Seriously, I don't even know how to thank you for all you've done for me!
I'm going to reply the comments soon, but I just wanted you guys to know… That I'm forever thankful. :hug:

Have a nice week my dear friends!!:hug:
I've really gotta go now, I'll check my spelling when I come back! Sorry if you didn't understand me!!
