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.
