“My Starry Night House”


Crystal Mease is in 8th grade at D.H.H. Lengel Middle School. This artwork was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. The project requirement was to use paint to create the same wavy effect achieved in Starry Night. The colors she chose were purple and blue to complement each other.
