Van Gogh at the Lume

 Last week, I went on an excursion with a group called the Warrandyte Trippers. Every month, they go on an outing and it is the first time that I have gone with them. We went on the bus into the city to see the Van Gogh Exhibition at The Lume theatre.

It wasn't a painting exhibition, it was Van Gogh's paintings projected onto walls around a big dark room with beautiful classical music playing. It was a wonderful experience being surrounded by his paintings and they were so large, you could see every brush stroke.

Here is me sitting in his famous bedroom painting.

They had a café set in a scene like one of his paintings too.

I tried to take a photo of the Starry Night sequence, but my photos do not do it justice.

His sunflowers looked enormous.

I bought the book about the exhibition.

Inside were lovely big photos of the exhibition as well as the inspiring quotes that were on the big screens.

I could have bought so many items in the gift shop, but I eventually settled on this lovely little tray.

It was a wonderful, moving exhibition and I would love to go again. I have to go back to the Exhibition Centre again in July and so if it is still going, I will buy another ticket.

Bye for now,

Sound incredible! I can't imagine being able to actually sit inside a painting - a brilliant mind came up with that concept.

I agree, Magpie Mumblings, there are some very clever and creative people around.
