inspiration: Vincent van Gogh

Yesterday I went with Johbont to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. We thought we'd go early to avoid the huge crowd of visitors, but it was already very crowded. I've never been to a Museum with so many people. A bigger contrast is not possible. Van Gogh was hankering for acknowledgement during his life, but he got none and now he's over-famous, but he will never know... I think that's sad and I wish it had been different for him...
