Acrylic and textured acrylic on Canvas
30″ × 40″

Inspired, of course, by my love of Van Gogh…but also infused with the sounds of Saint-Saens and Chopin. Got some vigorous, broad brushstrokes going here to the music. I hope you can feel the passion of the piece :)

So much is taken for granted on a daily basis and I want to bring to the forefront colour, vibrancy, frequency, pensiveness, wonder, reflection, action and energy through my passions.

My art is how I interpret the world around me, it is how I see this life – a palette of unbelievable colours and a sea of energy. The potential every living thing has and the knowledge that everything is a manifestation of a Divine essence is, in itself, pure magic.

    Congratulations! – Featured on 4-3-12 (Suzanne ~ Group Host)
    This has such a feel of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ – lovely work Cherie!

  • I love Starry Night, thanks for your feedback :) I am very influenced by Van Gogh, he is definitely one of my favourite artists. He was so expressive and captured movement and energy so well!
