I know this is not Van Gogh, but as I started writing his work came to mind.
This was written for THE MAG #155

Paint the world with all its vibrant colors
So it can be seen as it truly is.
As expression of beauty and love
shown so vividly in your painting.
Help us feel the emotion
your subjects are feeling.
Do it with the stroke of your brush,
dabbed in oil and placed so elegantly.
Show us our world through your eyes
and expressed through your work.
For you, the artist, see it in a peculiar way.
You see our world differently yet so real.
You paint the brightness in the dark
and the dark in the light.
You paint the simple in the complex
and the complex ever so simple.
For you are an artist.
With your mind and your brrush.
With a world who shunned you.
You are not crazy.
It is those who labeled you
that clearly were.
You, Vincent are beautiful.
