Van Gogh's painting of his Bedroom in Arles shows how a small, simple room can be the best refuge. The charm of the colors and the plain furnishings capture the viewer and give him or her pause to stop, look around, and experience this humble sanctuary. The straw seats of the chairs echo the fields outside the window. The precious paintings hang on the wall beside the single bed. The shaving mirror hangs next to the pitcher on the table for grooming in the morning, his reflection staring back. Only enough room for one, for him. But this is not a lonely place. It is empty of material excess and full of creative joy.
