For Vincent

March 30, 1853,
was the birthday of Vincent Van Gogh,
a Dutch post-impressionist painter…
but no introduction needed.
And I couldn’t choose a painting to add.
So instead I just picked without thinking!
I can’t think of paintings of his I like less… really!
Oh, and did I mention I love to dive in his paintings and live there?
Maybe Kurosawa [a most dear to me, film director] did too…

Akira Kurosawa

Dreams Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh (part)
Music: Frédéric Chopin / Prelude No.15 in D-flat major

Wherever you are, Vincent… thank you!

  1. Starry, starry night
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
    Swirling clouds in violet haze
    Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue
    Don McLean
    are you familiar with his song?

  2. Wonderful!
    How crazy that today, I went through my PVR’d movies and ended upon “Lust For Life”… I started watching it as I scrolled through my emails and fell upon this. Nuts!

  3. Many years ago (1993 or 4?) I saw Akira Kurosawa’s film “Dreams”. The person I saw it with hated it, but I thought it was great. I only remember bits and pieces of the film, but I do remember the Vincent van Gogh part. Vincent was great! I love his works.

    • Hated it?!!!!! What can I say! I also remember parts of it but I do recall being in a dreamstate throughout the whole film! 😉 The ending with Vincent slowly disappearing down his ‘Wheatfield with Crows’ [his last painting!] is so moving…
