Van Gogh on a biscuit/cookie

When myself and fellow bakers got together to celebrate Van Gogh’s birthday on 30 March with a collaborative worldwide cake project, I was inspired to paint this haunting self portrait of Vincent Van Gogh. He was a true artist in every way, he lived and breathed his craft and was so misunderstood with his deep thoughts and sensitive nature, he was born before his time. I know that I speak for many artists out there that will look at this tormented soul and can be so pleased to celebrate his masterpiece and rejoice in his final recognition and sure his soul rests in the knowledge that he was finally understood.
I would like to mention a special thanks to the mastermind of Alyssa Hall of “Cuteology Cakes” (https://www.facebook.com/I.Love.Cuteology.Cakes?fref=ts ) as it was her starry and bright idea to collaborate 50 bakers that come from all walks of life and experiences and joined forces to have so much fun with this project.
My dear friend Rae of “Cakes by Raewyn” has complied an in-depth album into each baker which you can visit at this link…

Vincent Van Gogh… we celebrate your life, your creative talent and your vision…. many have tried to copy you (including me with my humble biscuit).. but no one will ever be unique you :)

This cookie: I used cocoa butter mixed with edible colours onto a flood iced shortbread biscuit… the one photo I placed into the colour palette I used for this painted cookie.biscuit
