Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh -
at the Museum of Modern Art in NY.
As many of you know, one of my art heroes is Vincent Van Gogh. His vision of a star filled night is one of my favorite paintings of all time. However, after my experience of painting at night in the Northwoods of Wisconsin I know there is no way he painted that outdoors.
Oh, did I mention I was standing on a narrow board walk as I painted this. If I took a step back, it was going to be a mucky walk back to the cabin.
It took me about 10 minutes then I had to call it quits. I was so surprised, the night sky changes as much as daytime. The star on the right of the moon is actually a planet, I forgot which one though.
