His days before suicide, van Gogh wrote to His Mother, "the trouble i had in my head ... I calmed considerably HAS am completely Call Absorbed fait que vast plain covered with fields of wheat Against the hills boundless as the sea in delicate colors of yellow and green, the pale purple of the plowed and weeded earth checkered at regular intervals with the green of the flowering potato plants, everything under a sky of delicate blue, white, pink, and purple. I am Almost too calm, a state That Necessary to paint is All That. "
