Mandy Snow - Love where I Live


Hey shazza...not what i planned on doing, but here it is....
Starry Night painting was all about Vincent Van Goghs fear and obsession with death. I wanted to turn this around and i tried to make my page colourful and happy, about a happy subject...I live in the middle of suburbai, and sometimes grumble and wish I live on an acreage, but it's mornings like this that make me love where I live.
I used small strips of paper to try and represent the paintstrokes of Vincent, with the tree and the houses and "hills" all in similar positions as they are on starry night....

Mandy, you have put a lot of work into this layout, so much to look at, I especially like your morning sunrise pic behind the tree, from your paper brush strokes to your little doodled houses.... Fantastic !! - Shazza
