    My favorite artist is Monet but my favorite paintings are The Starry Night and Starry Night on the Rhone by Van Gogh. I have a half dozen copies all around my house. I've got a new ash bodied Tele coming today and I'm considering a different color body for it, so I'm cruising ebay and what do I find? A guy that hand paints The Starry Night on the front and Starry Night on the Rhone on the back!

    Beautiful! One of my favorite artists. If you haven't seen a Van Gogh in person please do. The depth of paint is incredible.

    I'd be proud to have a Starry Night Tele .

    Beautiful! Looks like nice work. Pics when you get it all put together?

    Made me think, just briefly, I'd get a kick out of a alternate version of the famous Edvard Munch painting...

    I've seen both of these paintings and many more Van Gogh works. The man painted with a shovel it seems, his works are almost 3D.
