I’m excited to talk about Van Gogh this week because I have a show coming up on Saturday and the artist who interpreted this song will be there: Wendy Bull Oakley.
Van Gogh Heard is about listening to that inner pulse that allows your brilliance to shine. I’m thankful that these artists listened to my songs and came up with images that are so unique and powerful.
“Van Gogh heard dying sunflowers in yellow mustard hues
Van Gogh heard storms of swirls and curls and echoes in the sky
Van Gogh heard empty cafe tables beneath a starry night
Won’t you tell me, do you hear what Van Gogh heard?
Do you hear what Van Gogh heard?”
(chorus from Van Gogh Heard)
Song by Eve Fleishman/Joseph S. Smith. Image by Wendy Bull Oakley. Read more about Van Gogh Heard in the exhibition book. You can also bid on the painting, with proceeds to benefit PeaceTones.
This song really is about a journey. It’s about finding peace with yourself no matter where you are in life. The moon is my anchor, giving me hope even when I feel lost.
“Pretty Moon, shine your light on me
Take the gloom edge off my window
For allegedly, you’re my friend
And I believe in you
Til the end of the Earth
Won’t you shine down your mirth
Into this dark and lonely place….”
(verse from Pretty Moon)
