Van Gogh

It is looking at things for a long time that ripens you and gives you a deeper meaning.

It is so nice to see some of Vincent's lesser-known works. Thanks!

Ones I would like to see on my walls:
Cafe Terrace at Night, 1888
Flowering Orchards
Field with Poppies (1889)

(Actually any of them would do.
:-)

Elena had Cafe Terrace at Night next to her bed, so I have spent a lot of time looking at that one when I was tucking her in. Good pick!

Van Gogh is one of my all time favorites. Talk about "unfamiliar"... I've never seen Skull with Burning Cigarette! and I'd thought I'd seen them all. That's not a spoof??! :-D

I love the delicacy of Flowering Orchard. I'd truly love to have a print of that on my wall to see everyday.

I enjoyed this very much, thank you!

I could look at all of these for a long time.

What a treat. I've always loved the café one as well. Years ago, there was a Van Gogh exhibit at the High in Atlanta - I was nothing less than mesmerized by the drawings/works on paper. I will always remember how potent and delicate and amazing they were. (And that my family had to drag me out of the museum...) ;0)
