Saint-Remy Lavender Field

Saint-Remy Lavender Field
8 x 10 inches
Oil on wood panel.

This is a view of a lavender field near Saint-Paul hospital, the asylum where Vincent Van Gogh stayed from May 1889 to May 1890, in Saint-Rémy de Provence. Vincent painted 143 paintings in and around the hospital.

Ironically, I found out after I posted this earlier, that today is Vincent's birthday. He would be 156 today. Happy Birthday, Vincent!

Very nice Bill, love the colors in this. Vincent's birthday, odd that you just happened to post this today.

I couldn't believe it, right after I posted this, I checked back to a site I looked at, regarding his stay there, and found out that it was his birthday.

Wow! Stunning! It took away my breathe for a moment. 25 years... about the same since my last painting. The easel is up, the idea is clear, but the brush...

Clearly you have inspired. Thank you for the follow.
