About Almond Blossoms -- quoted from http://www.vangoghmuseum.nl/en/collection/s0176V1962

Van Gogh painted this sparkling still life of delicate almond blossom against a clear blue sky for his new-born nephew Vincent Willem. His brother Theo wrote, in the letter announcing the new arrival: ‘As we told you, we’ll name him after you, and I’m making the wish that he may be as determined and as courageous as you.’

As a symbol of this new life, Van Gogh chose the branches of an almond tree – a variety that blossoms as early as February in the south of France, where it announces the coming spring. The subject, the bold outlines and the positioning of the tree in the picture plane are borrowed from Japanese printmaking. The white blossoms were originally more pink but have faded on exposure to light, losing some of their chromatic intensity.

Van Gogh meant the painting to hang over Theo and his wife Jo’s bed. The couple preferred, however, to display it over the piano in their living room. Unsurprisingly, it was the work that remained closest to the hearts of the Van Gogh family. Vincent Willem went on to found the Van Gogh Museum.

This was made for my memere who is in a nursing home and that I am unable to visit. She absolutely Loved it. The stitching of the name in the font chosen was beautifully done and the angel in her purple gown which is my mems favorite color was absolutely gorgeous!! Such thought went into making this and it made someone very special to me very happy. This is why having a creative person like Kathleen do this for me made it even more perfect. Made with Love!!

The 3 wise monkeys were in colors of my choice and they just pop out in person. The brown fabric and the frame design were the choice of the artist who selected the perfect match. It looks amazing on my wall and it adds to my collection of the Wise Monkeys I have in statues. If you have a design in mind just give it a shout out to Kathleen and if she can make it you will be holding magic in your hands!!
