Worth a Thousand Words: Starry Night Over the Rhone

Van Gogh, Starry Night over the Rhone, 1888
Naturally after today's poem about the firmament, I had to turn to Van Gogh. But I found a slightly different starry night than we usually see from him.

This is via Arts and Everyday Living where there is a very interesting post about Van Gogh's neighborhood and all the paintings that have bits of what he saw everyday.

For the full glory of this painting, click to see it full size. You really get the sensory effect of waves and reflections and stars far overhead.
