Embracing my Inner Klimt - Part 1

I have absolutely no recollection of what Dave and I were talking about, but a new word came out of it. I love when we increase our vocabulary!

Dave: "You're making a persumption."

Me: "Persumption! I love that! Presumption plus perception equals persumption!  That's awesome!"

Dave: "I didn't say that. You need to clean out your ears."

Me: "Then I came up with a new word. That makes me awesome!"

Feel free to use my new word. Unlike Dave I don't copyright my invented vocabulary.

And I started working on a painting inspired by Gustav Klimt. I fell in love with Klimt when I first saw a poster of one of his paintings in a girlfriend's house. It was stunning. Lucky for me, as part of a class I'm taking I began creating a Klimt inspired painting of my own.

I sketched out my design...yes, I borrowed a lot from Klimt.

I painted the background.

I forgot to take photos along the way, so this is after I'd
added a lot of color and gold on the swirls.
I love how the gold sparkles!

I'm feeling the need to add a lot more sparkle!!! Tomorrow....

  1. Klimt - you have good taste! Love your spin on the painting. And the new word - I'll have to write that one down.
