Day 396 - Birdhouse of a Different Color

As you may recollect, I was asked to put my own particular brand of mess on two ceramic bird houses which will then be donated to the annual craft show that my work holds.  I finally stopped avoiding this task and set to work on the one based on VanGogh's Starry Night. Notice, I say "based on" because I have neither the man's gift for color nor the skill to emulate his brush work.  I can only pay homage in my own sad, little way.

The other birdhouse, which I haven't started yet, will have flowers/leaves in the style of botanical illustrations but, you know... not as good.
