Almond Blossom Suction Cup Window Vase
Suction Cup Vases start out flat and expand with water. With the added advantage of a suction cup, Modgy expandable and collapsible vases will adhere to any clean and flat surface in your home, office, hotel, car, RV or any other place you can think of. Think of a plain window in your bedroom, a lifeless file cabinet in your office, an unattractive mirror in your living room or an old tiled wall in your kitchen. The vibrant designs and attractive colors are sure to make any space worth looking at twice. Add in a few floral stems or cuttings from your garden to add to the aura.
On January 31, 1890, van Gogh’s brother Theo wrote to announce the birth of his son, named Vincent Willem van Gogh. In celebration of his newly arrived namesake, Vincent immediately began painting. He selected the almond tree to symbolize new life as the tree blooms as early as February, heralding the coming of spring.
The composition of the painting is very different from Vincent’s other works. The influence of Japanese prints is clear in the positioning of the tree and the boldly outlined branches. The soft white blossoms with their delicate pink shading make a beautiful contrast against the gnarled branches and multi-hued azure sky.
