  1. Reading the info under Read about the Painting, I discovered the comments about the “meanings” hidden in his painting. HA! I will offer a view into human nature of some folks who are art fans.. A painting of mine was in a show about 20 years ago, I happened to overhear a couple of people discussing it. Their interpretation was hilarious. They saw great images and meaning in an area where i had spilled some soda pop and then wiped it up with paper toweling and then tried to feather it with my brush to cover the error….After witnessing that phenomenon at art shows quite a few times, I decided only the artist knows what was going on when he/she executed any particular painting.. The “fun” is in the eye of the beholder !! So if you are a beholder, have at it and enjoy! And if you want to buy my painting, your interpretations are welcome whatever they are and will bless me too ! 🙂

    • Very funny. Marta. I did enjoy the writers view that much of that was nonsense. Funny to hear your first hand Account.

  2. I have never seen that painting of VanGogh — I recall being overwhelmed by a room full of his paintings at a small museum in Amsterdam in August of 1968 — very intense!! And I appreciated his portraits when they were exhibited here in Cleveland. I didn’t realize what a short life he lived! Thanks for highlighting this painting today, Lori.

  3. I have a picture of it on my design wall. It is part of my admission ticket of when I went to visit his museum. I love this paint. I remember where it was hanging on the wall.Thanks for sharing your love of arts and quilt with us.

  4. I loved the comment of Mary above. I felt the same when we were at the Musée D’Orsay on the 5th floor where the Van Goghs, Renoirs, Monets, Cezannes etc were. Everyone in the room had the same look of wonder on their faces. Hope to visit the Galleries of Amsterdam on our next European trip. I love your painting feature, Lori.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
