Loving Vincent

Have you seen this latest project based on the works of Vincent Van Gogh?  It is a film generated solely by paintings inspired by Van Gogh’s original works, and narrated using material from his 800+ letters.  What an amazing collaboration – even this trailer is mesmerising to watch.  I can’t wait to see the final version….



Like millions of others, I find Van Gogh’s work to be moving and inspiring.  When I feel I can cope with the crowds, I hope one day to visit Amsterdam with Hub to look round, among other things, the Van Gogh Museum.  In the meantime, I can be contented via our own Scottish National Gallery, where there is coming soon a wonderful-sounding exhibition of works by Van Gogh, Monet and Daubigny.  I am sure this will be yet another stunning summer treat by the gallery.

      1. Long years ago I went to an impressionism exhibition in Edinburgh with a friend. It was a short visit but we were most likely at the National Gallery; how terrible not to remember clearly.

      2. Well, the mind can do that sometimes, can’t it. We are all different and remember things in different ways. I am always amazed at my husband’s ability to remember things from way back in minute detail – eg a concert, where he will know when we went, which orchestra was playing, with which conductor & soloist etc. My memories of this type of thing are often very hazy, although I usually know what I did or did not enjoy! 🙂


  3. This looks pretty darn awesome! I am looking forward to it now, it’s amazing what people can do with technology, it is a good mix with that Doctor Who episode.

    1. Yes I see what you mean re the link. And totally agree about the power of technology to support the creative arts these days. I love playing about with my art app on my iPad Pro in my own humble way, and it makes me all the more in awe of the professionals.

      1. It is amazing what even the most casual of users can do but the professionals do epic things that I could never even imagine…which is why words are my forté.


      2. You are excellent at painting pictures with words, my friend 🙂
