Klimt Inspired "Austrian Musician in a Red Scarf" finished




I finished the painting. I wanted to use gold leaf but couldn't find mine. So I used gold oil paint. I thing it works because the gold doesn't fight with the figure.

It was fun to push my self. And of course my sweet brother "Sir Harald" from Wells Austria loves it. He lives very close to were Klimt spent his vacations on the lake. Isn't it interesting that we my husband I are blessed to have friends in Austria. I never dreamed I would get to go to Austria and have friends in Klimt land!

That's a lovely painting! I love his face. I've just decided to go back to some painting also. Haven't gone back to oils yet, but you are inspiring me to do so. Great job on this musician!
