Arles, France

Dear Theo,

This is my new bed in Arles. I’m very proud of it because the Sunflowers painting you helped me sell allowed me to buy this bed. All night I thought about my neighbor ____________, whose face I cannot see but her eyes are chestnut, warm, with lashes so thick they remind me of spider legs. I haven’t slept all week.  

Love, 

Vincent

P.S. It’s cloudy tonight, no stars.

[note: I’m interested in Van Gogh’s bedroom (the one with the bed), you know, one of his most famous that I happen to love. With it, I wrote a brief ficticious letter to his brother Theo. I’ve been writing stuff (as opposed to sketching) related to our next topic, just to explore the ideas.]
