A Fabulous Fake of Van Gogh's Sunflowers

Fabulous Fake~Van Gogh's Sunflowers
Ok, something a little different today! Those of you who visit my other blog Art & Life know that Van Gogh is my favorite painter and in the last few months I've done several pieces that have been inspired by his work like For Vincent. You'll also remember from this blog Sunflower Trio, Van Gogh Sunflowers Mug, Van Gogh Postcards and from my website, Flowering Trees Inspired by Van Gogh. This painting came about because I'm teaching a class right now called Learning from the Masters, in which we learn about a particular artist, his/her times, working method, style and analyze why their paintings have come to be regarded as masterpieces. Then the students actually make a copy of one of the master artists works. So along with my class I did a rendition of one of Van Gogh's 14 sunflower paintings. I hope you enjoy this fabulous fake as much as I enjoyed painting it.
