I ‘m finally able to appreciate Van Gogh’s vibrancy with his colors. Colors (over and above things aka the objects themselves) are really speaking to me this season, reminding me of their significance.Not sure I’ll be able to post a FAF today (lots on the to-do list), but be sure and check out my Fashion post (shameless plug) http://hiddenart.blogspot.com/2010/03/fashion-fridaycolor-fusion-coral-is-my.html
This painting is one of my favorites of Van Gogh’s work — I think because it reminds me of the hills, the farmland throughout my area that I love — “vibrancy” — yes, the energy of the land – the work – everything pulling the eye up into that work.
