While I'm no VanGogh (hence the MerGogh title), I had a lot of fun trying this technique for today's Technique Challenge to do the VanGogh technique. Thanks, again, Lynn, for being such a wonderful challenge hostess this year! You brought us a lot of cool stuff to try.

Oh my goodness - this is fantastic. You have so captured the feel of his skies. And your colours - love this.
I think I should just take a photo of my Iris embroidery - it would be less embarrassing than my owl attempt.

Oh. My. Goodness. You have totally nailed the style and feel of Van Gogh (my favorite artist along with Monet and Renoir). Charlene, this is so incredibly beautiful and is sure to be the standout in the art gallery today.
