ADVENT STARRY NIGHT

I painted this Advent Starry Night in 1997 in purples, blues and golds. I removed the color on Photoshop for possible reproduction on a Christmas eve liturgy. It's nice to see that the composition holds up in black and white. For me, pondering the mysteries of Christ's birth is what this season is about.

Of course , there is a serious nod here to Vincent Van Gogh.

This is absolutely beautiful. I love the way you used VVG's idea, but totally made it your own. The B&W is gorgeous, and I bet the color version is even more so. I'm blown away. Thanks for sharing.
