Facing the Inevitable

1880 - Van Gogh
After having experienced failure, uncertainty, and doubt, Van Gogh finally answers his
calling: he shall be an artist.
I visited the Van Gogh exhibit and this statement stuck with me. I learned a lot about Van Gogh during my visit. For one thing, I learned that he had a very difficult and painful life; both emotionally and physically. I was also surprised to learn that it wasn't until after he died that his artwork was just beginning to become popular. Even though during his entire life he struggled and faced pain, failure, and rejection, he always knew his calling: "He shall be an artist."
