Starry Starry Night

What do you think starry starry night by Van gogh is worth? Well it is worth 140million dollars . It was painted in 1889 in France

When I looked at Vincent’s very famous piece I thought I was there . It ls so realistic because it seems as if it’s moving.The brush strokes on the painting are bold which gives it a nice flow.

In the sky there is a beautiful koru like pattern. I stared at the koru I realised that there wasn't only on colour there was many others. But when I paint I normally use one main colour.e picture

The two things that even out the painting are the church steeple and the cypress tree.
These balance each other out like the bright sky and the  gloomy village.

I sure wouldn't pay anything near 140million dollars even if I had that kind of money.

Swimming Is Awesome

“Woo Hoo Were going swimming get you togs everybody” I shouted . I was soo excited that I just wanted to sprint down the street.But unfortunately we had to be sensible and walk.

Entering the pools the smell of chlorine hit my nose faster than a bullet . We ran to the changing room got changed and we were out in a zoom.

Our first activity was a test to tell what group we were in.I got put in group 3 which is the highest one.jumping into the pool I was so pleased.

My favorite thing about that day was getting to know that I was in the highest group.Most of the people in that group were girls but me and my friend wyatt were the only boys.

The next day was all about kicking and breathing . Guess what I swam 3 quarters of the big pool without breathing. I think I was the best at holding my breath.

I like swimming because I always come out happy. Next time I am going to try swim the whole pool without breathing.

Sunflowers By Vincent Van Gough

Do you have enough money to buy vincent van gogh most well known painting ? Probably not unless you 50 million dollars to spare. This painting is called sunflowers it is 73 x 92 centimeters big and from tip to toe was made with oil paint  it was painted in 1888.

This painting was soo thick and textured he had to give up food to buy enough pain for it .Sometimes he didn't even use a paint brush he used a knife. If you had a chance to touch his painting it would feel like a pile of rocks.

Most people think that he was happy when he painted this.The yellow on his painting represents happiness. His main color is yellow when he first started painting he used dark colors.

When I look at his painting I think that it cheers people up.But if you look closer you will see that some of the flowers are dead.But a lot have just grown some are even old.

When he was painting it I think that he was always thinking about his friend Paul Gauguin and what his room would look like.He wanted his paintings to impress his friend.

If I was Van Gogh and was still alive I would have a mansion and all the latest stuff.
