It is amazing what they did with that wall. Van Gogh would smile if he could see it.
Now they made the wall into a wonderful piece of art.
Love the details.
Great crop!
TGIF...
Ginnie Hart: Van Gogh WOULD smile, I'm sure of it, MLMA. We saw so many wonderful things that day, didn't we! Hartstikke bedankt.
I absolutely love this. My favourite shot of the day.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Michael. Thank you.
Brilliant
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Navin.

Oh yes, a very fine observation -and a nice idea to pep up a bit this tristesse/ decay!

It looks like an ancient Roman ruin.
Ginnie Hart: Just about right, Michael! smile

Indeed there is. Lots of interest in the decay, too.

So many things one can do with this picture, but maybe the rough and ready approach is the best smile A beauty.
Ginnie Hart: This is how I saw it, Louis, so...thank you. smile

Just curious...were the paintings painted 'on location' or were they painted somewhere else and then 'installed' over the windows? What a wonderfully creative way to brighten up and beautify a decaying wall. Thanks for sharing this with us!
Ginnie Hart: I wish I had gone up closer to inspect this, Sue, but, alas, I didn't. We were on our way to check out a nearby church and just caught this in passing. But it looks to me like the Van Gogh is a painting that was inserted there? Thanks fore your comment.
