My favorite artist is Van Gogh. And then this week's challenge at IA was Celestial. So here is my ode to Van Gogh's Starry Night. I put my favorite elements from the painting into this collage. I always dream what it would be like in that little town with the church on the hill. Of course in the Van Gogh, the details of the darkness to the side of the town has a spooky feeling to it. So really wanted to add that detail to the collage. And then the details in the sky on Van Gogh painting is amazing. I don't even come close but I had fun creating the stars with cardboard and gesso.

I have been very fortunate lately. I was picked to receive the December monthly challenge gift from Inspiration Avenue. It was a beautiful painting of a little Christmas tree with an e.e. cummings poem. The Artist is Lisa from at Priti Studio. I love the painting and the beautiful frame it has is like icing on the cake. What a wonderful gift to receive!

Altered By The Sea. The piece was my first time to use gesso. I added it to the frame, covered some old pages to create the snow covered mountains, and sprinkled on the sky. The piece had to include a little scrap panda of course! This was fun, I would like to find more share projects.
