“Starry Night” Christmas Balls inspired by Vincent Van Gogh

$18.00

This is a Christmas Ball inspired by a well known painting called “Starry Night” painted by Vincent Van Gogh, a Dutch post-impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western Art.  As an artist I have always appreciated Van Gogh’s body of work, his use of colors, patterns, and textures he was able to create in his paintings.  If delivering or you visit one of the galleries where they are located, you can purchase a 4′ diameter round ball.  If mailing a ball, I send a disc shaped ball which is 4″ wide from one side of the ball to the other, and almost 2 ” thick.  The disc shape will fit in a 6×9 bubble envelope.

The ball looks like a glass ball, but it is actually plastic so it won’t shatter like glass when dropped.  Each ball is individually painted and no two balls are exactly alike as I don’t follow a specific pattern other than the moon is on one side of the ball and the rest of the area of the ball has swirling strokes portraying the moving wind and sky patterns as they swirl and encircle the smaller “stars” in the night sky.  

I am happy to email buyers a picture of the specific ball they purchase upon request but they are all beautiful if I may say so myself.  Being an artist, I am pretty detail oriented as I paint each of them one by one. I personally sign the bottom of each ball with comes with a gold hanging ribbon, and a curly ribbon with a sparkly silver to and from tag attached for gift giving.

I will have these balls as well as other hand painted Christmas Balls at both the Village Artisans Gallery in Yellow Springs, OH as well as at the ARTery at Front Street Gallery in downtown Dayton, OH.  If you would like to purchase a ball but are not able to get one from either gallery, please email me and we will find a way to connect or I can ship it to you for $2 extra per ball.  melaniemorrett@gmail.com

If you will need multiples of this ball for Christmas please contact me directly and we will figure out the easiest way for me to get them to you.  Thank you 🙂

Vincent van Gogh painted Starry Night in 1889 during his stay at the asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Van Gogh lived well in the hospital; he was allowed more freedoms than any of the other patients. If attended, he could leave the hospital grounds; he was allowed to paint, read, and withdraw into his own room. He was even given a studio. While he suffered from the occasional relapse into paranoia and fits and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Later in his life, he began to suffer hallucinations and have thoughts of suicide as he plunged into depression.  In the end, he took his own life, such a sad story, but his work will live on forever because it was so beautiful and unique.
