(GOODLAND, Kan.) — A northwest Kansas landmark is back in its place near I-70 in Goodland.
This week a giant replica of one of Vincent Van Gogh's sunflower paintings was returned to its easel in the Sherman County town. The painting has been part of the Goodland landscape since 2002, but was taken down for several weeks for repairs.
The years caused wear on the 24 by 32 foot piece of art. It was created by artist Cameron Cross. He returned to Goodland to tackle the refurbishment project.
"I was able to work on it on the ground, so I repaired the canvas, washed, repaired screw holes and fiberglass, then repainted the whole thing and gave it a layer of clear coat," said Cross.
