It’ll take me awhile, but a fun project. I did a puzzle of the Starry Night two years ago which just about did me in LOL. Love this painting! There is an artist named Adam Lister that makes modern and “sort of pixelated” paintings of famous artists. You should have a look at his instagram page. I am not sure if he has done Starry Night, but there are other paintings he has made. I am so tempted to make a quilt with one of his designs. I would love to see your quilt when it is done id love to see your quilt! are you on facebook? Thank you for such a great understanding of this paint8ng. I’ve always been taken by the sky and didn’t pay attention to the rest. Thanks too for the analysis of the song lyrics “Vincent”. I have always loved it, but didn’t know the title having always called it ‘Starry, Starry Night’. Don McClean is certainly a fantastic lyricist. Van Gogh was a tortured man as geniuses often are. My favorite cup, picturing Starry Night , I purchased at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Canada’s Watertown National Park. I’m so glad to have more information about the painting. This is one of my favorites of Van Gogh. He was such an amazing painter, even though he was a bit crazy ❤️ I have a three volume set of letters between him and his brother (mostly in dutch) and it is wonderful to read. There are also a lot of little sketches in these books. I am fortunate to have this book set that my daddy gave me Love his paintings. I’m a Dr. Who fan and one of the best episodes was when the Doctor ended up visiting Van Gogh. At one point Van Gogh, the Doctor and Amy were lying in the grass at night looking at the stars and they swirled into this painting…we saw what Van Gogh was seeing…very cool. How artists see the world and translate it always fascinates me. Susanne, Spoonflower has a Van Gogh meets Dr. Who panel you might like. It is squares that need to be sewn together but is is fun. Re-creating this with fabric painting, thread painting and applique would be an interesting challenge. Not for me, I don’t have the talent or enough patience for it, but I know there are quilters out there who would make something magnificent. Thanks so much for sharing this. We went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science exhibit called Death by Natural Causes. One of the featured items were paints used by artists like Van Gogh. The paints were made from natural elements that themselves have a toxic affect that could cause ailments like blurred vision, hallucinations and even death. No wonder many of the great artists had mental and physical issues. I purchased the fabric several years ago (it was a real good sale, image that) and it’s on my ironing board. It’s such a pleasure patching, quilting and sewing and seeing this work in the corner of my room. And I have leftovers pieces which are to become a pillow! Thanks for all the artists that you share with us…I always look forward to reading about them. At the moment we were supposed to be on a trip to Vienna, visiting the Albertina and all the other lovely museums and the opera but we are happy to be in our “personal bubbles” here at home, safe and busy with our hobbies… My college roommate painted this on the dorm window. It stayed for years! We all loved it. Love everything he did! Inspiring! I’ve always loved this painting. I wonder if it would be possible to recreate it as a quilt. I saw the original in the Netherlands in the early 1990s. It’s small – posters are often bigger than this. Cherrywood Fabrics had a competition with Van Gogh as the theme. Wonderful art quilts. The painting is a favorite of mine. I used the swirls in my quilting of the night sky several times.I also did a diamond painting of it. https://youtu.be/KV2gbFdmbBI Comments are closed.
