Visiting Van Gogh

This week I visited Auvers-sur-Oise, a charming old town on a bend in the Oise River, north-west of Paris. Here is where Vincent Van Gogh lived the last 70 days of his life, painting more than one canvas per day, including many of those most beloved today. Below are some photos of Vincent's room (the cheapest in town), which was kept intact from his days; of Maison du Docteur Gachet, his friend; and of les tombes de Vincent et Theo. The golden wheat, the clouds, and nature's sounds were beautiful and magical. I made some studies in this, the very same field that Vincent depicted in his final painting, Wheat Field With Crows.
