Alex Ruiz often wondered how the sky looked when Vincent van Gogh painted Starry Night
. "This is an homage to him, and to his painting, one of my all time favorites," he says. "I wanted this piece to be somewhat magical and fantastic, not just a normal night painting. Hence the large moon, large stars, transparent clouds etc., yet keeping a mostly realistic feel to it."
