The Last Unicorn

Playing in one of my art journals and inspired by the challenge over at Creative Friday!  This is a new challenge site for me; I just ran across it a couple of weeks ago and I was drawn in by their themes this year.  They are looking at special dates of well known people and celebrating them.  This challenge they are celebrating the life of Vincent van Gogh and using the "Starry Night" piece as the inspiration.  

I've always been sort of intrigued by this painting and had the opportunity to see the van Gogh VR Experience at a nearby museum!  It was wonderful; I highly recommend it.

Knowing a tiny bit of van Gogh history and looking at this painting, I was inspired to create The Last Unicorn.  I included the stars and blues from the painting.  I often think of van Gogh as sort of a mystical unicorn looking for his place in our world, but belonging in a mythical place only he knew.
