During the last two years of his life Vincent van Gogh, the Dutch Impressionist, took of yet different perspective to the objects of his painting – an up close look. So I learned at a special exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art – van Gogh Up Close. I, too, love to take photographs from that different perspective. sometimes the up close look. That’s how this impression was made and got it’s name – up close. Red tulips, forever linked to the Dutch, symbolize true love – the ultimate renewal.
