THE VOTES WERE CAST AND Entry #1 won!
The artist behind this Vangoh Starry Night rendition is Edwina Shelley from Party Picassos Facepainting! Here is a note Edwina submitted with her entry!
“LOVED this contest. I knew immediately what I was going to do; Van Gogh’s Starry Night.
Over a year ago at a nightclub, a man asked me to do it on his face. I didn’t have a lot of time, but it was fun. So my entry is one I painted today of Van Gogh’s famous painting.
Van Gogh used lots of texture and line in his work – not lots of smooth graduated tones. Most of the time in face painting, we use the blend cakes and don’t use much texture. Our work tends to be cute, silly or scary, but this time I got to work on a more “classic” level.
Thanks for the opportunity. It was great fun and I had a very willing and patient model (thanks, Makayla!)”
The second place winner was Jen Schuster from Sunny Face Painting. She painted a Chagall inspired painting of the Garden of Eden. She also did a fantastic job! Thanks so much to both of you for taking the time to go out on the limb and paint with a whole new style!
And thanks to the 24 people who voted!
