This is a piece I made for my mom, inspired by Van-Gogh's "Starry Night", her favourite painting. It took me about two months, since I didn't have a lot of time to work on it, but I'd estimate that overall it took me about 10 hours straight to make. It's not perfect, and I think there are things that I could have done better technically, but I like the complete effect and the colours, and I'm aware that it's probably only me that will notice the imperfections in real life. What really matters is that my mom loved it.

And a close up:

Beautiful beading.  I love the way the swirls of the beads make the swirls in the painting.
