Starry Wishes For Vincent

by Lee Anne Kortus

This is a gift art work for Jaime, who is my 'adopted' niece. She recently had a beautiful baby boy who is named 'Vincent' after his father. The Starry Night by Van Gogh is one of her favorite paintings and one of mine as well. I thought it was fitting to do an painting for little Vincent that was a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh's most famous painting. Jaime, I hope you love it! I wish little Vincent all the starry wishes of the sky! This was a real stretch of style for me. The whole thing is painted with my Wacom in Photoshop. I have a whole new admiration for Van Gogh's style. I felt challenged and a bit uncomfortable with it at first, but in the end found it quite 'freeing'. Thank you for looking!!

    This is lovely Lee-Anne, think you've captured the Van Gogh style very well especially with the sky. And the idea is great :)
