When I saw this in person at the DeYoung, DeBussy's "Clair du Lune" was playing in my earphones. The first time I saw a van Gogh was in third grade, when I was seven. We were being taught how to use a paint program in our computer lab, and a poster for "Starry Nights" was hanging on the wall. I thought it was gorgeous and tried to recreate it. Sometimes you just need some inspiration.
