Did you know that Cockroaches could live without their head for a week?.
Well I didn't know until I read the book.

Well other thing that strange about them is that they could  up to 40 minutes holding there breath in the water.

They could also lay more babies then a humans could.

Cockroaches could live without food for a month.

These insects could eat the left over beard crumbs.

They Cockroaches were around when the dinosaurs were here.

Starry Starry Night

Starry Starry By Frankie

Starry Starry Night

Starry Starry Night is one of the famous painting he and painted out of his painting he painted it in 1889 before Vincent Van Gogh had died.

The main colour in this picture is the colour blue. But there are bright yellow contrasts  in the village lights. As you could see in the background it is mainly light, but in the foreground there is a  gloomy cypress tree and the dark village with the light yellow for the house windows.

The objects that stand out for me is the cypress tree and other thing that stand out for me is  the bright light  moon.

Vincent Van Gogh

Do you know who is Vincent Van Gogh?

Well I know a little bit of him because I've been learning about Vincent Van Gogh for the last few 2 weeks at school.  

Well He wanted a job like being a teacher and he tried to be a art dealer. But then he didn’t get the job. After he did some art work he wanted to be a artist.  

He painted himself portrait, starry starry night, sunflower and Starry Night Over the Rhone.
One day he was sad that why he cut off his ear.

I like this painting.

Frankie VinCent Van Gogh Sunflower

The wonderfull painting of Vincent Van Gogh’s is called Sunflowers.The size of Vincent Van Gogh’s  Sunflower  painting is about 73x92cm.It was painted  in 1888.

The painting he used for his colours were  brown, yellow, orange and a little bit of black. Why he used these colours because he wanted to decorate  Paul Gauguin room with hes pictures that he painted and put it up on the wall.

What I felt about Vincent Van Gogh sunflower painting was the light bright colours like yellow orange, brown and a little bit of black. When I look at the colour yellow it represents happiness.
What I don’t like about it is when he was making the srokes and the bump it the painting .

I think Vincent Van Gogh wasn’t happy when he painted his sunflower. When he had painted   some of it was half dead there was some dead too.
