Artist's Description

this is the rest of the “van gogh” painting.
No stop in Altona would be complete without viewing the town’s own contribution to the Guinness Book of World Records! Dubbed the Largest Painting on an Easel, the giant replica of Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’ will simply take your breath away!

In 1998, local artist and school teacher, Cameron Cross had a vision: He would create a landmark that would combine Altona’s reputation as the Sunflower Capital of Canada with it’s deep artistic roots. With assistance from the Altona and District Chamber of Commerce, this vision was realized. How was this accomplished?

First, a 76’6’’ high, 27,000 lb, three-legged easel was engineered and constructed. Then, 24 sheets of 3/4’’ plywood were laminated together to form the “canvas”. Top this off with talent, combined with 17 gallons of paint, and the vision is complete! Originally located north of the Altona Park, the painting was moved to is new location on 10th avenue in the north east corner of town in 2006. This wonder must be seen to be believed!
