Van Gogh has always been one of my favorite painters, perhaps because he was one of my dad’s favorite painters. I think I saw this painting at the MET in New York (or at least a similar one) and really loved it. I love how Van Gogh’s paintings show motion. Just look at the sky and branches in this painting. You can see the wind. I love it. It’s the sort of fantastic reality in which I would like to live.
I saw this painting at the Getty Museum in LA long ago, when the Getty Museum was in the old Getty mansion, not up on top of the city as it is now. I love the vibrancy of the colors in this painting… the blues, oranges and even the whites seem to live on the canvas.
