Oh, the Brushstrokes!

As seen at the Van Gogh museum last Friday, The Pink Orchard, oil on canvas painted in 1888 by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). He painted a series of ~14 orchard paintings from the end of April to the end of March that year. They have three of the orchard paintings hung side by side at the museum. (see them in this video) They are more beautiful in person, of course -- a lot of wonderful movement in the trees.

  1. That museum is #2 on what I'd like to see in the world, right behind the Gobi Desert!
