Vincent and Pete Dakota

 Pete Dakota fancies himself Gregoropolis's resident artist, but he's been having some inspiration blocks lately...

Pete Dakota: >Sigh<

Pete: I think my muse took off for the weekend.

Nothing for it but to sit and have a think.  Maybe with a 'cocktail' and chat with one of one's favorite painters...

Pete: What did you do, Vincent, when you couldn't think of anything to paint?
Vincent Van Gogh:  Well, my boy, sometimes creativity is a long time in coming.  

Vincent: But, you've got to paint every day!  Even if just little sketches. 
Now, look here.  I painted sunflowers for my friend Paul.

Vincent: Lovely, aren't they?
Pete: They're beautiful!

Vincent: Look around you and paint what you see.
Pete: What I see?
Vincent: Yes!  When I was in the, er, hospital, I could see a wheatfield out my window.  That was my muse, and I painted several canvases of it.  Just paint what you see!

Vincent: You've got to have a lust for life, boy!
You can do it!

Pete: A lust for life!  Mix up the oils and open the shades!
Here I go!  Thank you, Vincent!

Hmm. What will he paint? "Paint what you see"... Hmmm.
I'm SO curious!!!

oh, boy, I need a Vincent V. of the sewing world to help me get my mojo back, too, Pete, so I understand completely! Can't wait to see what you create.

Phew! I'm so glad Vincent did recommend he cut off an eye to get some inspiration!
There is nothing like getting a mental block when you want to be creative but I'm sure it will pass. I'm looking forward to see just how Vincent's inspired him..
