Who doesn't love Klimt?  I always loved Klimt's work. I have done several works of my impression of Klimt. Each time I say, Oh, it will be easier this time as I have done so many. Not so. It always amazes me how many symbols he used in his works, symbols within symbols within.... I wonder what he was thinking? Every artist has a reason for what they paint and why? Many are never explained so we have only to guess what was on the artists mind when they painted that painting. Of course his works were a lot larger than mine so it actually makes it easier to paint all of those symbols.

In Melodies of Klimt, the paintings on the wall are "The Kiss" and 
Fulfillment - The Embrace. They are miniature paintings within this painting 2.5 x 3.5 inches and much more difficult to paint.
These are my two favorite Klimt paintings. What better way to express how you feel about that someone special.....
With and Big Hug and a Big Kiss!

This Art within Art painting would make a great
gift for that special someone for the holidays.

The back wall, the flooring and the beautiful woman on
the sofa are all excerpt's from several of Klimt's paintings.
The Melodies from a beautiful Harp is what I hear when
I paint with Klimt so thought it was appropriate.


Gustav Klimt
Many of his paintings from this period used gold leaf; the prominent use of gold can first be traced back to Pallas Athene (1898) and  Judith I(1901), although the works most popularly associated with this period are the Portrait of Andele Bloch-Baie(1907) and The Kiss (1907–1908). Klimt travelled little but trips to Venice and Ravenna, both famous for their beautiful mosaics, most likely inspired his gold technique and his Byzantine imagery
