Monday Morning Art: Licorice Van Gogh

I took a photo yesterday of the notorious Freedom Industries tank farm, which leaked MCHM into our drinking water in January, and aside from wondering why it’s still standing when they were supposed to have started dismantling it last month, I thought that it might be interesting to see what the photo would look like painted in the style of Vincent Van Gogh.

So I spent an alarming amount of time meticulously painting digitally over the photo while using all my Van Gogh brushes and trying to make properly Van Goghish color choices. After a lot of work, I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t so interesting after all. But I was too lazy to do a different painting, so you’re stuck with it. Click to enlarge.

And check back later Monday Morning for a very cool RFC MINI SHOW starring The Terra Firma Ensemble.
