    Long ago we had a thread here at TenForward about Vincent van Gogh.

    I just found another site with info (thanks to Marianna for her link to the Holland-ring).

    For my buddy Blaze:

    At that site are the words posted of a song by Don Mclean.
    It starts with:
    "Starry, starry night".
    It makes me think of that sad thread of you about Zeus.
    I haven't forgotten it........

    Thanks for the link. I like both Van Gogh and Don Mc Lean!

    Van Gogh was a great expressionist. His pure and bright colors, and his brushsrtokes themselves, in their very shapes and rhythms convey the pressure of of a joyous perception of life. Unfortu. his work got "somber" in the end of his life. But what a great painter! :) Also, like many of his contemporaries, he could not made a living out of his paintings...which today cost a fortune.
    BTW, for those who like virtual gallery, I have another link
    here in my favorites. There are figurative artists of this century:

    About Don Mc Lean, I still have and old casette tape of American Pie. Madonna made a remake of the song "American Pie" :eek: but I like the original made by Mc Lean best.
    Bye! Uguel

    Not to take anything away from Van Gogh, of course, ;) (the great artist is beyond anything I can rightly comment on), but music is the art form I love the most!! So much can be found in the tune and the lyrics. "Vincent" is a great example of the beauty that can be put into a song. (Too bad the .midi file there was not the best. Oh well, can't have everything.) :rolleyes:

    Hi FanJ !

    Well, I like music too and understand your choice. But it a diff. matter when your have a try at it. I've been painting and drawing since I'm a teen, went studying Fine Arts at University--I pay my studies by giving drawing lessons-- And it seems not too hard for me. But.... I started playing the guitar a few years ago. No matter how hard I try I'm still MEDIOCRE. :'( People here are glad when I put my guitare away when I'm finished or they would politely ask me to play upstairs instead. :D It is much easier for me and for them to put a CD in the magnetophone! ;)
