Starry Night Over the Rhone by Vincent Van Gogh

This piece was the first one we obtained for our collection. It was a sweet gift from Tim/Dad and Hope/Mom.

To me, this piece is about romance, travel and wonder.

I’ve always enjoyed looking up at the night sky. I like to think about the words from Psalm 8:

Psalm 8:3-6 (ESV)

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?
Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under his feet,

My favorite constellation is Orion. I quickly search the night sky to find Orion’s belt every time I’m outside and can see the stars. I’m encouraged to wonder and dream while looking at this painting.

I’d love to take a walk by the Rhone with Jeremy under a star lit sky. Additionally, my husband is incredibly romantic. He loves me well. He loves me deeply. This painting reminds me that I am well loved.

A fun discovery happened after we acquired this piece. Our piece is a canvas reproduction. After receiving this and placing it into our frame we realized that truly we want prints on paper unless we are buying the real thing.
