Another Van Gogh 'knock off'

Hi Everybody!

For Paint Party Friday and 99 faces I have combined 2 of my Van Gogh 'knock offs' to make one new picture, as Reha/Boot Camp has taken all my strength and energy this week. Just 3 more days, and then I will be finished and can get back to my quieter life. The background was painted with acrylics and the details drawn with pastel chalks and white Pentel pen. The head of Van Gogh was painted with water colours and pastel chalks.




The only photos I managed to take this week were of the sunrise and birds waiting outside for my 'breakfast bar' to open!








Have a great day you all, take care
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  9. Vincent looks fantastic and Starry Night is well represented, too. I like how you created this. I swear, I don't see how you do it. I'm so far behind I can't find my tail right now. So those photos of the sunrise and birds were especially special today.

  16. Fantastic Van Gogh page Valerie and I surprised you have the energy to do anything after you days at boot camp. Juts hope it has done a lot of good after all the hard yards.

    Always great to see your balcony and wonderful birds that visit there

  24. Be very careful, my dear Valerie, or you may be lured into the black market of knock offs. You are getting very good. Starting a new business called "Channeling Van Gogh" might be fun. :o) The colours are so deep and rich. Or "The Sun Always Rises" ... beautiful photos. Hope you survived another day at BC! Not far to go now. hugs, Donna

  25. Fabulous van Gogh piece, Valerie. The colors are so gorgeous. You are almost finished with rehab. My daughter just finished up 6 weeks rehab with an injury from playing soccer (yes, at 51 years old!). Have a wonderful weekend.

  43. How do you do it? Wonderful knock off as your knock offs always are. You should really go into the knock off business. In our old house in the mountains - I had an artist come in and paint one of Van Gogh's sunflower paintings on the wall - I even had her sign Vincent's name on the vase.
    So I read that you are almost through with boot camp - know you are happy about that.
