Vincent van Gogh Starry Night

Finished painting by Angela Canada Hopkins, Copy of Starry Night.
Over the weekend a bunch of artists, including myself, volunteered to paint a community mural.  The project involved painting indoors (thank goodness 'cause it was snowing) on primed canvas sheets. 

Yup, that's me painting.
Eventually all the paintings will be pieced together, like a puzzle, on plywood panels and sealed.  The installation will be used to hide a boarded up store front on 4th Street in Downtown Loveland, Colorado.

In progress.
 Check back - when the collage of paintings are installed I'll post a photo update.

More info about the REAL artwork from Wikipedia, "The Starry Night (Dutch: De sterrennacht) is a painting by the Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitorium room window at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (located in southern France) at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, part of the Lillie P. Bliss Bequest, since 1941. One of Van Gogh's most popular pieces, the painting is widely hailed as his magnum opus."  Link to site:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Starry_Night
