A Van Gogh

This Van Gogh, The Cafe Terrace is currently sitting in my bedroom in a temporary spot on the wall at the end of my bed (obviously a print not an original).

A print I bought 15 years ago at the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne and still all these years later it makes me feel happy and gets me to dreaming.

Maybe it's the colours or maybe the cafe scene that reminds me so much of the various cafes hubby and I sat at the last time we were in Europe.

I do love Van Gogh's paintings in general and have visited the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam twice. I can't wait to get back and go again.

With all this in mind I think this print needs to go somewhere in the new living space, just have to work out where and whether to keep it in its wooden frame or maybe change to a black one.

As for the new living space, nearly there - painting, painting, painting and I am sure will be for another few weekends.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

  2. Does the painting ever end? It feels like that to us too. Looking forward to seeing more of your amazing renovation. ;-)
