“Flowers for Klimt”

Gustav Klimt has long been my favorite artist and a major source of artistic inspiration. His work is intricately decorative, richly detailed with gold leaf, hues of orange, brown, green, speckles of blue, red, yellow, purple; it’s ingenuously erotic, and, more often than not revolves around one femme fatale or another.

Makes me swoon just thinking about it!

The painting below is my way of paying homage to an incredible artist. Like flowers, I plucked and rendered the three figures from Klimt’s painting “Goldfish” to create “Flowers for Klimt.” While mine does not at all resemble the brilliance of a Klimt painting, the central figure is unmistakably Klimt’s– with an L.E. Amatulli twist, or course. Hope you enjoy!
