Two Florida homeowners owe thousands of dollars in fines for painting murals emulating a Vincent van Gogh masterpiece on the exterior of their home.

A report by WKMG-TV shows the Mount Dora home covered in blue and yellow paint swirled on the house and a perimeter wall in the style of van Gogh's painting "The Starry Night."

Don't we all hate stories where the subject of the story is a visual, and they don't include a picture? It's never been easier to include a picture with a story!

I want to see this house!

On edit.... posted picture in post below.

None of the stories say exactly who is issuing the fine.

Thanks for adding the photo. It is kind of horrible in my opinion. But someone went to a lot of trouble.

They can't honestly have believed there wouldn't be any negative fallout from that! I mean, I'm all for artistic expression, but that's over the top.

Mount Dora is an artsy community. I’m surprised someone local objected.
