    Beautiful....loved the start with the mentiin of Van Gogh, the hint of madness confirmed at last with touching paint. A clever and creative write

    I wish you touched it with your fingers instead of your hands.
    It is very tasteful. Such an incredible unity between imagination and reality.
    By the way I thought " garden of the asylum" was in black and white. Of course is my bad. But regardless, even if it is, the magic of your words, wanded colours into it.

      Thank you. I agree, it should have been 'fingers'.
      But the painting this is based on is anything but black and white. It was hard to find a copy on the Internet that has the same captivating depth and sensory vibrance, but this brushed the surface (scroll down): https://au.pinterest.com/pin/436708495101291998/

      I swear, with all the earnest paint the artist loaded on that canvas, it must still remain a little bit damp under all those layers, even after all these years.

      I know this is how Van Gogh is: His stars are still twinkling, his sun still shining, his wind is still blowing, and his sunflowers are still bewildered.

    Judging comments: This is remarkably beautiful. No other words to describe it but truly a piece of art. I loved the imagery and how it truly came to life, as it did for the point of subject feeling the wet paint. Life is messy and beautiful and when you jump in and touch it, you'll get some on you and experience the most amazing things. So many details packed into such small spaces - reading it multiple times, I get a fresh feel each time. Beautiful.
