A Paris Stomp

Here Rick Nilson does his best to mock the masters. In this case the artist is Gustave Caillebotte and the painting is "Paris, Rainy Street". "I have just sketched in some of the shapes. No.  Don't ask me why. I spend a lot of time deciding what not to paint. Yes. If I get past it, then there is the "how not to paint it" bit. Sometimes. I will probably keep adding paint to this. No.  Don't ask me why. I am having a lot of fun with this scene, but there is just so much.....stuff." He said.
 Oil on canvas 14"X11"

Gosh, Rick...I think your's is the top, yes? I like it much better than the original, quite honestly. Much more movement and life to the piece than the original (unless your's is the bottom then I take it all back). Your version reminds me quite a bit of Van Gogh, for some reason...
