Paint & Wine Class....A Starry Starry Night

Another fun Paint & Wine class on Saturday night!  We were all searching for the "van Gogh" inside us.  Who doesn't love this famous painting....(not mine...his)!!!   While I feel mine is more "folk arty"....his is wonderful Impressionism.  And what makes his paintings so wonderful, besides the "energy" in them and his great use of color...is that he puts a lot of paint on the canvas.  In the class, I'm trying to capture the subject. Learning his actual technique is a whole different thing.  I have to say that everyone had a super painting and all unique in their own way. What would van Gogh think if he knew what an "impression" his art still makes today?
