The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Musée d’Orsay are proud to present the second installment of paintings by Van Gogh. As such , we decided to use him for our inspiration this week. Color was the chief symbol of Van Gogh’s expression and living in Sonoma county we too are surrounded by colorful vistas. All too often, we pass through the scenery which surrounds us: the rolling hillsides, the vineyards and orchards, and don’t stop to take it all in. This week We are inspired by Van Gogh’s work and his ability to capture what he saw. We invite you to stop, take a moment and perhaps you too will find your creativity among your surroundings. Happy Beading!
