Starry Gesso

When I finished this card I felt it reminded me of something.  It finally came to me.  It reminds me of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.  Something about the swirls.  I took one of  my postcards and painted on it with gesso from the sides towards the middle.  Then I grabbed my handy (in the waste basket!) plastic bag and began to press and turn it while the gesso was still damp.  There was some old paint on the bag which must have been watercolor as some of the red/pink started to faintly deposit onto the gesso.  This was meant to be a base but I fell in love with it and decided to leave it as is.  As usual, the detail is easier to see if you click on the image to enlarge it.
