I took this pic coming out of my local coffee shop a few hours ago and then posted it on Google+ with the following text:
Hey, if you wanna kick mundanity right smack in the teeth by dressing up your minivan with a full-body paint job to honor Van Gogh, then I say Go For It! I also say, THANK YOU, random person who parked near me at the local coffee shop, because you totally brightened my day! BTW, you can’t tell from this picture but this whole thing was hand-painted stroke-by-stroke as far as I can tell. The paint actually has texture and depth.
Well, after doing some research on Le Internetz, I discovered the Website of Paula Cundiff, the artist who both painted and owns this wonderful vehicle: http://go-van-gogh.blogspot.com/. She’s a resident of Louisville and also apparently a fan of the same coffee shop I favor, so perhaps I’ll get to meet her someday soon. At which point I’ll thank her for her art, gush about our mutual love of Van Gogh, and probably also offer to design a Website for her that actually properly reflects and supports the awesome that is The Go Van Gogh Van.
Like I do.
