"Starry Eyed"

I am one of the trillions of people who marvel over Van Gogh's paintings - you're lucky to see them in person really. You can almost trace each deliberate brushstroke made from start to finish - lots of movement and animation, thick layers of multitudes of colors - absolutely stunning how he handled paint. 'Starry Night' needs it's own room, bleacher seats would be nice - it's almost impossible to stand before it without a dozen or more people fighting for that glimpse.

From the Museum of Modern Art, a patron gets a rare, dedicated view of the most popular, most reproduced, most recognizable painting by Van Gogh, 'Starry Night'.

Fabulous work. Loved the Diego Rivera painting inside a painting, too. I like this series of museum viewers pointing our eye to the good stuff.

Wow! Plain and simple. I LOVE how you paint! The movement-the observation of movement, the slight brushstroke of color that speaks. Beautiful.

I love this piece! Very pretty!

I have a quick question for ya too: Do you ever offer prints of your work?

Always love your gallery shots with the painting within a painting, Karin. They are always fabulous and always interesting.

Karin Jurick said...

To answer the question - I do not offer prints of my work.

Too much fun since this is how I see the Van Gogh at MoMA with so many people in front of it.
