Starry Night

Van Gogh was inspired by the idea that when people died they entered the after life as a star.  The town is so quite in the night, but the stars are full of body and life, while the tree acts to connect the two.  I’ve taken a interest in Van Gogh recently.  It’s the psychologist in me.  I’m so enamored by the idea that someone so painfully depressed could create something so beautiful and full of life.
