Vincent Van Gogh - a huge favourite of mine, so evocative of our first summer and inspired my first wall tree.

Art in The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley – in pictures

1/18/16- To do something meaningful. Seems like a long hard journey that isn't worth it. However, if I can leave something bright, beautiful and heartfelt behind it might be worth it. After all, this little painting Van Gogh made stirs hope in me that happiness and joy that I have only glimpsed from a distance could be mine. And it should be others' too.
