This portrait of Van Gogh is stationed across the street from the AGO. I immediately thought of Rebecca Budd – Lady Budd.
EEK! It kept staring at me, following me. I walked back and forth, thinking the head was being automatically turned. NOT!!!
Check it out! The video is only 18 seconds.
I also shot stills. I thought Rebecca will love this! She is such an arts aficionado, and I mean ALL arts and artists.
Then I thought of Marina from Art Towards a Happy Day, who is an artist, musician and does wonderful posts about classic artists.
Then serendipity happened! Rebecca interviewed Marina about art in a podcast on Tea Toast and Trivia, on July 19. I found Van Gogh on July 19.
I know you’ll love the podcast. Click on the pic of VG above, and go there!
I started at the other side in the 20 second video below.
Fascinated, I went up close.
Turns out the part of the face that follows is an indented sculpture, with some paint on it.
This is the only shot I have of this size close up, in an attempt to show you what I mean of an innie sculpture. LOL, I accidentally cut off most of VG’s left ear. Honest, I did not crop!

On my way home yesterday, from another successful Street Art adventure, I looked down at the sidewalk, and there was a spirit of Hera. I think it looks like Hera! Hera is Marina’s sweet puppy dog.
