"You can't be at the pole and the equator at the same time.
You must choose your own line..."
--Vincent Van Gogh

On Van Gogh's 160th birthday, it is fitting to remember and celebrate his artistic genius. No one painted like Vincent! As stunning as his paintings are in books and postcards and prints, nothing beats seeing them in person. If you're ever in Amsterdam, take a day to visit the Vincent Van Gogh Museum; that's where I first fell in love with his talent and vision. And there are rooms in the Musee D'Orsay with such amazing examples of his work it will bring tears to your eyes. It did mine. So, here's to one of my favorite artists!
Happy Birthday, Vincent!
