Starry Night and Van Gogh


Chris and I have probably passed this mural at least a few dozen times. Admiring it as we stop in to our local library and before I make my way to work in the mornings.  I knew the mural was a re-imagining of the impressionist painting The Starry Night, but for some reason I was convinced that that painting was a Monet. However, as illustrated in this mural, and as pointed out by one of you guys, The Starry Night was painted by Van Gogh.

In other, less artistically inspiring news, I am in war to the death with the wifi connection in my apartment. It has been acting up...as in going down...as in not working. I smiled and tolerated this foolishness for a day or two. Then on Monday night, enough was enough and I had to fix it - which meant I spent more than THREE HOURS on the phone with tech support and customer service people who did not support me technically nor did I get serviced as a customer. So I head back home tonight to do another battle with my wifi - we'll see who will laugh last. Wish me luck. 

Thank you for visiting.

  4. Hey Natasha, I actually cut my own hair based on this tutorial on youtube : http://youtu.be/RLFBhCOVx4E clearly I got a little scissor happy and cut it too choppy but she does great diy vids that are easy to follow.

    also, loving the peek of polka dots against the striped blazer :)
