Daily WOW: You Won’t Believe How This Artist Recreates “Starry Night”

The Daily Catch - published on 06/13/16

This man has true talent. He is practicing a technique known as paper marbling, which artists can use to make very intricate patterns, but we’ve never seen anything as detailed as this:

Our jaws were already on the floor when he practically recreated Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” on water, but it was when he swirled it around and we saw what else he could do with it that we were truly impressed. We should all strive to achieve this level of excellence in everything that we do.

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.’” ― Erma Bombeck
