Van Gogh's Starry Night

Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” gamboge moon and stars dance haloed whirlwind marriage in violet sky lemon-greens and greys calm sleeping childhood mem’rys beneath white steeple as black cypress looms past swirling clouds like fleeting requiem for love. deborah burch 07/10/2012©

Vincent would be proud of your art Deborah - ' calm sleeping childhood memories beneath white steeple...' is a brilliant adaptation to his image - reminds how youth is the foundation of all things powerful - I really like Van Gogh's still lifes of boots, and you may like his painting, The Poet's Garden - J.A.B. %
