Life Imitating Art

Black-Eyed Susans
This is day 5 in my photo a day challenge and I just happened to have picked this jug of Black-Eyed Susans. There was something about the jug that reminded me of the sunflower pictures of Van Gogh. 

Van Gogh "Sunflowers"
The picture is actually a cross between a Van Gogh and a Picasso - OK, I'm giving myself a lot of credit these days - anyway, here is the Van Gogh and the Picasso.

The other Picasso is lighter has more of the "feel" of my Susans - anyway I think that my picture is a good example of life imitating Art.

I would also like to add a reference that I made to a group in Britain that take a work of art each year and translate it into knitting.

Here's the link to my blog about The Materialists They recently worked Van Goghs "Sunflowers" in knitted fabric et al - Now is this life imitating art - imitating life?
