CCEE1713 - Van Gogh's Birthday

March 30 is the birthday of Vincent Van Gogh. Today he would be 164 years old! Let the lyrics of Don McLean's time-honored classic, "Vincent," inspire your design today. Don McLean wrote this song in 1971 after reading a book about the artist's life.

Vincent 

by Don McLean

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
How you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They did not listen,
They did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand




We hope you choose to be inspired by Mr. McLean's beautiful words to create a card to honor Vincent Van Gogh and his contributions to the world.

If you post to Splitcoaststampers or any other on-line gallery, please include keyword 1713
