OK I have the Klimt bug...

Here is my second Klimt inspired painting but this it is mine!  Thank you Patricia for allowing me to sketch you from one of your photo's so long ago.  I finally got inspired to do something with it!  I love that original photo of you!

I am calling her Ariel and still have some tweaking to do to her.

The Gritty Jane/Klimt Challenge...

Here is one of my entries...

Yes I said one of my entries.  I am inspired!  I have to say I really have learned to appreciate Klimt!  This is done on a 9 1/2" x 11 1/2" 140 coldpressed watercolor paper using acrylics and wc crayons some ink.  It was not easy by any means but I did learn alot from trying!  I had wanted to make it a Klimt inspired painting but I can get anal especially when I am trying to figure things out. (Please don't tell me I am too hard on myself or being self critical I am just being honest!)  Anyway, I came away wanting to do more and that is a good thing!  I want to make them more my own but inspired!  I just have to/want to keep trying!  Why not!  It is fun!  Here is the link to Jane's blog if you'd like to see what this challenge is about!

3rd drawing/painting/collage Joyously Becoming class....

Using oil pastels, gesso, graphite, watercolor crayon over a collaged telephone page.  Now I know I cropped it without showing the bottom right and the bottom left of sketch book showing.  This happened yesterday too.  In Picasa after editing it does not show up.  I then exported to my picture and it is showing up????  Oh well!

I am enjoying Joyously Becoming the online class with

Katie Kendrick..  This is the 2nd day.

I am finding it very freeing and fun!  Every now and then it is a good idea for me to take an online class and I really admire Katie's artwork!

Still plodding along but at least the heaviness of August has left...

for the most part that is!

This is an old leaf I am painting on...
A close up.
This is my attempt at playing with Klimpt on an 8" x 8" piece of water color paper.  As I proceed it is looking kind of crappy but at least I am having fun with it.  Don't think it is going well at all but I still want to finish it.  I will post ugly or not.

The moment waits for you....

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog! I appreciate all of your visits and comments!
