The Heartwarming Story behind the <i>Starry Waffles</i> Painting

Matt Dawson is a painter who lives in Louisiana. He recently became Internet famous when he published on Instagram a photo of his latest painting: Starry Waffles. It mimics the style and background of Vincent Van Gogh’s iconic Starry Night, except that it shows a Waffle House restaurant instead of the town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in southern France.

Dawson explained to Fox 35 News Orlando that his painting shows a specific Waffle House in Sorrento, Lousiana. It has special memories for him: when his wife was sick, he frequently took her to medical appointments. They’d stop at this Waffle House on their way back home. It was a refuge in time of stress, which is exactly what an American diner should be in the middle of the night.
