Klimt - He's nice and all but...


fabric panel
Originally uploaded by mlee.etsy.com
Quoted from a co-worker of my husband after my husband showed him my work and mentioned that I was a fan of Gustav Klimt. A bit enough fan that one of my first baby carriers has a panel with fabric inspired by his work.

"I'm sure his work is nice and all, but I like your wife's work better."

While I totally do not agree with him I am completely and utterly flattered by the compliment. Gustav Klimpt was one of my favorite influences as I grew up as an artists. I loved his usage of pattern more than anything else and that is an inspiration still today. Many of these majorly Klimpt inspired pieces can be found in my shop today. Anything of my figurative work is 15% off this week of October 6th through 12th only! Just add Klimpt in your notes to seller when purchasing those works and wait for an invoice.

Flowing with the Night

Autumn Leaves Goddess

Deep Sea Goddess

And one of the master's most inspiring pieces.

I love Klimt's work but some of his pieces have been over-saturated.
That tree piece is gorgeous, however.

Awww thanks! But that final piece of his I posted certainly kicks my hiney.

Nice works...by both you and Klimt. The colors are what makes it I think...
