‘Starry Impressions’ – Day 344/365

‘Starry Impressions’ – Day 344/365

I imagine a painter’s fire isn’t always there from day 1. I imagine it is lit by some event or experience or encounter early in their lives.⁠
.⁠
Mine was lit the day I saw a painting by an artist who, for reasons I have yet to unravel, captured my heart.⁠ I was a little girl when I first saw it.⁠
.⁠
The day I finally got to gaze upon the original hanging in New York, I wondered what that view looked like that his artwork was created from. Today I decided to paint what I imagined he saw.⁠
.⁠
Do you recognise it? I’ll give you a hint. It was painted from the window of an asylum.⁠
