When I heard that Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night would be displayed at the Van Gogh Museum for a limited period, I just had to make sure to see it. I have been semi-obsessed in seeing the original ever since Miss Sy (or was it Miss Tsai) talked about it during Art History twenty or more years ago. The Colors of the Night was from Feb 13 to Jun 7, 2009.
I thought that I wouldn’t care less about the other works and just head straight for the Starry Night then off to do some shopping — but I was wrong. Time stood still that afternoon. I was listening to narrations provided by the museum — it was as if Vincent was right there, expressing himself, thinking out loud making me live the moment as he painted. I was feeling the passion roaring in him with every piece of art resting silently on the walls of the museum. Even my heartbeat and breathing started to change (that was interesting LOL).
Coming across these fun pieces brought me back to that afternoon at the museum.
This ring is part of a Vincent van Gogh collection of resin rings created by adelles. She design her own rings, makes a mould and then uses a mixture of pastel pigments with epoxy resin to create the unique colours and styles reminiscent of van Gogh’s brilliant artworks!
I love the color swirls!
The pendant is sealed with glass like epoxy sticker. This is handmade by Petitebox. This makes a wonderful one-of-a-kind present to a good friend or perhaps your fave aunt. Sunflowers have a way of changing one’s mood. I have a postcard of this painting and the shade of yellow brightens up a gray day.
More of Van gogh’s flowers this time created by ButtonDivas. This Vincent Van Gogh disc and hammered oval medallion charm bracelet features 6 flat-backed medallions charms with different images such as sunflowers and iris’s from some of Van Gogh’s flowers with vases paintings. It’s so cosmopolitan and will make a great gift for someone special (or for yourself!).
This is my favorite creation of RoseandRaven. She writes, “I adore the colours that Van Gogh used in many of his works – those gorgeous blues in the Starry Night paintings and the vibrant yellows and oranges that complement the blues perfectly.
I picked out 6 images of Van Gogh’s paintings and set them in decorative silver tone frames. I’ve filled each frame with glossy and hard wearing epoxy resin to protect the images. I’ve added an array of czech glass beads in the colours from the paintings and wired them securely to a sturdy silver plated chain.”
The Starry Night, painting by Van Gogh, is collaged on a two sided silver frame pendant. The charm measures about 1 1/8 inch diameter. Beautiful Czech beads in a milky green, faceted glass sparkle between Tibetan silver metal beads and turquoise blue Picasso beads, enhancing the colors of the Starry Night painting. Each dangle is wired to the bracelet for secure wear. Large silver leaves and bumble bees line the bracelet on either side of the Van Gogh. This beautiful bracelet is created by pinkflamingo61.
