1/18/16- To do something meaningful. Seems like a long hard journey that isn't worth it. However, if I can leave something bright, beautiful and heartfelt behind it might be worth it. After all, this little painting Van Gogh made stirs hope in me that happiness and joy that I have only glimpsed from a distance could be mine. And it should be others' too.
Impressionism by Vincent Van Gogh. This painting is ranked one of the most famous paintings. Even though the image is quite simple (of sunflowers) I think it's really effective. The colors work really well together and its clear to see what the image is of. Even though the painting is mostly 2D it gives a 3D feel to the vase.
VINCENT VAN GOGH (Dutch): Long Grass with Butterflies, 1890. National Gallery, London. Van Gogh was a patient at the asylum at St-Rémy, near Arles, from May 1889 to May 1890. During this time he was restricted to working in the asylum's grounds, and shortly after his arrival he described the 'abandoned gardens' in which 'the grass grows tall and unkempt, mixed with all kinds of weeds'. This view of these gardens was painted at the end of the painter's stay at the asylum.
Starry, turbulent night: Vincent van Gogh's "The Starry Night" may seem fanciful, with its swirling stars and complex brushstrokes. In 2006, though, physicists from the National Autonomous University in Mexico got curious about those swirls and plotted them as if they were real. What they found, reported Nature, was that van Gogh accurately depicted turbulent flow — on a mathematical level.
