I've always love Van Gogh's Starry Night painting, except the village. So I decided to play around with it and cut out the village. Here are my versions.  Please excuse my terrible pictures.

This one was supposed to be a different ocean/beach scene for my living room and next thing I know it's a Starry Night version.

My favorite section.

I realized I didn't like it all sky so I added the hills back in.

I love it! It's an homage to the original without trying to be the original. It's fun and whimsical. I would totally hang this on my wall.
