A Starry Night

    This is a pretty famous picture. For those of you who do not know, this is “The Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh. At first glance, all you see is a swirl of dark colors, but as you look closer, you see a small village down below and all the stars in the night sky. This picture gives you a good idea of the mood van Gogh must have been in while painting this. It is very relaxed and tranquil. It makes you wonder what life in the small village is like. Was it a long walk for van Gogh to go into town? Did people attend weekly church services in the steeple building? How long has that Cypress tree been there? This picture has numerous interpretations and one could create a whole story based on it. I’m not art critic, so I could be completely wrong, but I believe van Gogh wanted to create a painting that did give someone the ability to create their own story. What do you see when you look at it?
