Art Is Great Therapy--Visit A Famous Art Museum...

I was 19 and just out of high school and wanted to see the world.  When you grew up in North Dakota you felt a little confined, to put it mildly, when you graduated high school and looked around and all you saw for 500 miles were wheat fields.

I felt if I didn't escape from North Dakota a little part inside of me was going to explode!

It was teen angst!

I studied philosophy with Dr. Francis Schaeffer in Switzerland, then went to the Van Gogh Museum, and fell in love with his art.

Click this link and you can see a painting that captured my imagination at 19...in Amsterdam at the Riks Museum Van Gogh!  Also you can check out all the other museums around the world that let you take a 360 degree tour of their museum, via the Google Arts Project... (the photo above is of another Van Gogh painting I still like called "Threatening Skies.")
