Happy Birthday, Vincent!

"And my aim in my life is to make pictures and drawings, as many and as well as I can; then, at the end of my life, I hope to pass away, looking back with love and tender regret, and thinking, 'Oh, the pictures I might have made!'"
-Vincent van Gogh, Letter 338, 19 November 1883

Today is Vincent van Gogh's birthday. He was born in the Netherlands in 1853. For more info about him and his paintings just follow your fish to the Van Gogh Gallery. (Sometimes this site is a little slow, but it is well worth the wait.)

Ah yes. That explains it. Google had a special graphic up today and I was trying to figure out what it was for.

Happy B-Day Vin, you crazy bastard.

He was a top guy.
Have you seen the right wingers were not happy about Google using a graphic yesterday?
As one commentator says though; mountain, meet this mole hill.
I have Starry Night as my desktop and there are some good quality pictures at Artchive.

Thanks for the link back to my humble blog by the way - i'm touched and will, of course, return the compliment
