He must have been very, very unhappy.................who knows what was going on in his brain? There are enough books about his work and life but nobody can guess what
his real feelings were.....
When I was a child 12 years old I wrote my first poem and the fiirst lines were: 'I can't understand life.....it is so great and feels so sick..........I can't understand , I am lost in an ocean.........( very difficult to translate from Dutch into English, but I guess you feel the meaning) '
I think some people never loose those feelings and that you in your comment say you understand.

He was indeed a great painter but his life ended in a most tragic way....what a waste .

Yes, Riet, he painted some wonderful pictures.
I'm sure you know the song "Starry Starry Night", but have you seen this slide show to accompany it?

You have done me such pleasure! You are right...I know the song. Wonderful slide show! One of my brothers, 7 years older than me was a painter too and a great admirer of Vincent, you could say I've been brought up with Vincent van Gogh. :-)
Thank you so much!
