“for my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”

20 Feb

this semester i have an astronomy class [required science class for asu, not by choice] and it has actually started to draw my attention. looking at stars differently than i ever have, learning the names of different stars and their characteristics. the class brought me back to a piece of art.

starry night by van gogh is by far one of the most amazing pieces of art ever made [as well as one of my absolute favorites]. what makes it so amazing  are the circular strokes that make up the sky and stars. so peaceful and rhythmic. they tower over the small town and illustrate an apparent internal conflict within van gogh. loneliness and sadness are almost swept away in the sky. a beautiful piece of art. b-e-a-uuuuuu-tiful! i wish our sky looked like this. i’d sleep outside every night :)

“when i have a terrible need of – shall i say the word- religion. then i go out and paint the stars.”  -van gogh
