Mr. Van Gogh and Me

Our poppies bloomed this week! Knowing the blooms don’t last very long, I took a number of photos, and among them was one that reminded me of a Van Gogh painting. You’ve probably already gathered from artwork used on this blog that I love the art of Vincent Van Gogh! So in honor of his love of flowers and the beauty of his art, here is a photo of Van Gogh’s “Poppies and Butterflies” next to my photo of our Poppy (without butterflies).  Van Gogh painted this beautiful painting in 1890 in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. It is housed in the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
