Van Gogh: I'm feeling artistic! I'm going to paint a painting!

To those who say, "Dude, not funny", I must plead Refuge In Audacity and that I'm merely taking the joke to its logical conclusion. See also Wikipedia's page on Vincent van Gogh for an explanation of the joke.
Script from 1998-01-08; art from Van Gogh's "Self-portrait as an artist", found on Wikimedia commons, and Garfield taken from 2004-11-04, as the 1998 strip was too "busy" to be cut from cleanly.
