Starry Night in Iraq by mspenc121 Starry Night in Iraq by mspenc121
A quick airbrush and a lot of the cutout effect... Just an abandoned piece of art.


Probably what Van Gogh would have painted if he were alive today

AMERICA vs. iraq.

I think that America will win :) (Smile)

(by the way the black on the right is supposed to be smoke)

Love it. Great spin-off of the original which is my favorite painting. My husbands over there right now and this pretty much sums it all up.

you mean on the left is the smoke. yeah i liked it. i think your comment about america winning what you call a war was unecesary. i dont think of it as a war if the iraqui government never fought back, it was the people. and if there still are attacks, its coming out of the budget of the people.

Unfortunatly nobody wins, but everyone looses, the fathers and mothers and brothers of both iraqui and coalition troops, the unlucky iraqui civilians, etc.

Even if sadams regime surrender, the US will probably elect another sadam dictator that sells them cheaper oil, and after a few years he will rebel and another war will happen and more inocent ppl will suffer...

yeah, the same thing has happened sooo many times before, did anybody know we gave saddam millions so he could get into office... or that we trained Osama (sp?) so he could attack the Soviets... or that we took down a democratic country in South america (can remember which one) and then installed a dictator in it... the list goes on and on!

OK...no matter how many times I say "wonderful," it won't be enough.

I'm really liking this interpretation of classic pieces for modern purposes. Excellent, well-done, and hard-hitting piece.

The colors are perfect. I love the way the fireballs pop against the sky, the flames climbing into the sky, the smoke rolling up and across the horizon...

You're really showing the ugly truth in a beautiful way here. And it's a damn shame more people haven't come to see this.

I like Van Gogh and I love the original painting of Starry Night. But I don't agree that if that loon was still alive he would've thrown a damn jet into the pic. But it is an interesting idea for a pic :) (Smile)
