Coming from Vincent van Gogh we can’t do anything but believe this quote to be true. Also in economics you can observe this to be true. No business has started big. All start with ideas and guts, then trust and determination come into it and trough-out an open mind and observing the world around you with curiosity is important.
That Vincent van Gogh’s paintings are inspiring, most of us know. But his published letters show how much Vincent was inspired by all around him and took time to observe and analyse. He was an able writer as well so his letters are an inspiration to read. Not only do they throw light on Van Gogh’s own complex and intriguing character, they enlighten the whole creative process.
His main tool for color determination was a box full of pieces of wool. He made different combinations before he started painting. Vincent tried several careers without succes. I am pretty sure he would have made a great marketeer had he been living in this day and age. To me as a marketeer he is a great inspiration. I don’t enjoy standing in line so I do not see his work live too often but when possible I love observing his paintings, analyzing every stroke.
