The theme of my gallery is the sky. The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh is one of my favorite paintings of all time. I learned that the tree reaching up to the sky represents death as the pathway to the stars. Van Gogh - like me - was entranced and amazed by the sky and stars. He also did not consider death in the ominous way that most other people typically do. He uses the energy and power of the sky to depict the amazing wonders the unknown possesses.
