Love your Vincent pages! Thank you too for posting the starry night video link on your blog, loved it! He really did some lovely paintings and it's a great way to see them put to music :-)

Re: Altered Book by Nancy

Really cool Van Gogh pages. And thanks for sending me back to the Starry Starry night video - I hadn't seen it for a while. I agree that in a different time, Van Gogh would have had a different life. But, it could be (and has been) argued that his circumstances were essential to his art, so would we revere him the way we do?? Who knows???

Fantastic pages, Nancy!

Re: Altered Book by Nancy

This is a really interesting project and I love the discussions that this project has prompted.

I love this story! I quote it from time to time.

Yay!
