My wife and I visited the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam some years ago, and ever since she has asked me to paint her an Almond Blossom inspired piece.  For your consideration, and hers, here is my version with minor adaptations (painted in 1890, it is now part of the public domain masterworks).  I used bronze fittings, painted on a hard maple barrel with a gaboon ebony cap.  Available with a rollerball option, refills available at most office stores.  Limited edition of 88
