Starry Starry Night

The life of Vincent van Gogh as a tragic genius holds too much drama for my liking, but his paintings of starry nights piqued my interest.  In one of his letters to his friend, Eugene Boch, he described his study of Arles, depicted in the first painting below (The Starry Night over the Rhone):

"The town lighted with gas reflected in a blue river.  Over it the starry sky with the Great Bear - a sparkling of pink and green on the cobalt blue field of the night sky, whereas the lights of the town and its ruthless reflections are red gold and bronzed green."

 Starry Night Over the Rhone, 1888

Starry Night, 1889

Inspired to create my own "Starry Night" piece, I started with two onion-cut briolettes of teal blue London blue topaz and slowly and surely, the rest of the gems began to fall into place.  So here is the result ~ a petite cute little ensemble :-)


  1. I really love the "Starry night"!
