Delights the eye
Was it real
Or just seen
By Van Gogh’s
I have always admired “The Starry Sky” painting by Van Gogh and the interesting history behind it.
Therefore, when I was given the opportunity to try to paint it as a gift for my grand-daughter, I jumped at the chance,however as a beginner in art, and a newby with acrylics, I was challenged indeed!
However, as Van Gogh said: “If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” So I gave it a try!
The result was of course no where near as beautiful as Van Gogh’s but I had fun trying and my grand-daughter loved it!
