November 2011: The Potato Eaters (after van Gogh)

A strange thing happened between here...

Sketchbook. spoke to me of potatoes resting under their hill...

Drawing started.

...and there. But as I worked on it I began to see distorted faces with bulging eyes.

Wet image of drawing.

Then I remembered van Gogh's, The Potato Eaters. Another cosmic connection? Or just my imagination?

What do you think?
