If I Were Trying to Paint Like Klimt

If I tried to paint in the Gustav Klimt style, circa 1900, this is what my attempt would look like.

Thinking About Klimt, 6.5 x 4.5", watercolor, acrylic, and ink on Fabriano Medioevalis card.

Finishing Valentine's Day

In my last post, I said I was going to add patterns to the background to finish this piece. I finally did -- you can see them in the sky and in the foreground.
I framed it in a vintage 1930's mat and frame that I bought on ebay.
This kind of art - flat, bright, highly decorative --found just the right home on those old art deco and nouveau greeting cards.
