Laurie Maves ART's Ode to "Vincent" & Starry Night
This painting was created live on the starry winter night of December 4, 2013. I was hired by CECFA (Colorado Educational and Cultural Facilities Authority) to paint this during the evening of their holiday party at the Artwork Network gallery in the Santa Fe Arts District, Denver, Colorado. I have always loved vanGogh since I was a small child. This painting came like water to me. I know my work is no where near the mastery of Vincent's, but I still love his story. And I understand how painting helps excise the demons from one's soul.
