Vincent (Starry Starry Night) | a song . a painting & a film


Lianne La Havas – “Starry Starry Night” (Loving Vincent OST)

Vincent
[Starry, Starry Night]

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer’s day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand what you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they’ll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of China blue
Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand

Oh, Now I understand what you tried to say to me
How you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they’ll listen now

For they could not love you (love you)
But still your love was true
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night
You took your life as lovers often do
But I could have told you, Vincent
This world was never meant
For one as beautiful as you

Starry, starry night
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frameless heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget
Like the strangers that you’ve met
The ragged men in ragged clothes
A silver thorn of the bloody rose
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

Now I think I know Oh what you tried to say to me
How you suffered for your sanity
How you tried to set them free
They would not listen, they’re not listening still
Perhaps they never will

Written by Don McLean

‘Loving Vincent” is a new film created from a magnificent idea . showing Vincent van Gogh as he might have appeared through his own eyes. The LINK will lead to the HuffPost article . It comes with  The Exhilarating Full Trailer For A Hand-Painted Film About Van Gogh. How brilliant and exciting is that!? If you look just below my Haiku . however . you will find the Exhilarating Full Trailer for a Hand-Painted Film about Van Gogh there also. It’s magnificent. Van Gogh is the most gloriously impressive artist of all time. My opinion. Love the idea I will be able to breathe in through my senses how Vincent may have visually seen his world appear to him. This trailer definitely calls for a HAIKU REVIEW Haiku. – j.kiley

Loving Vincent | Official Theatrical Trailer

Portion from article on HuffPost . . .
The film [Loving Vincent] was created with the help of 125 artists who together transformed 120 of van Gogh’s paintings into 65,000 painted frames based on live action sequences. After a callout for artists went viral last year, van Gogh wannabes applied to train and work at the film’s studio in Gdansk, Poland.

“We cannot speak other than by our paintings,” van Gogh wrote in a letter to his brother Theo shortly before his death.

Thanks to Kobiela and Welchman’s ambitious project, van Gogh’s story will be told in his native tongue.

According to IMdB, Loving Vincent’ has some recognizable stars on board: Chris O’Dowd, Saoirse Ronan and Aidan Turner, to name a few. The film is set to hit theaters Sept. 22 2017.

If you
imagine less,
less will be
what you
undoubtedly
deserve.

DO WHAT YOU LOVE

and

don’t stop
until you get
what you love.

Work
as hard
as you can

imagine
immensities

don’t
compromise

and

don’t
waste time.

Start
now.

Not
20 years
from now

not
two weeks
from now.

The Known and the Unknown – #10

Every
once
in a while

often
when
we least
expect it

we encounter
someone
more
courageous

someone
who chooses
to strive
for
that which
(to us)
seemed
unrealistically
unattainable

even elusive.

And we marvel.

We swoon.

We Gape.

Often
we are
in awe.

I think
we Look
at
these people
as Lucky

When
in fact,
luck
has nothing
to do
with it.

It is
really
ALL about
the strength
of their
IMAGINATION

it is
about
how they
constructed
the possibilities
from
their Life.

In short

unlike me,
they didn’t
determine
what was
impossible
before
it was
even impossible.

John Madea
once explained

“The computer
will do
anything
within its
abilities.”
