Inspiration for the New Year...

for Christmas my childhood friend Ana gave me a wonderful book of Gustav Klimt.
Klimt has always been one of my favorite artists. In fact, I have been collecting fabric for several years to one day explore and do one of his paintings in cloth.

I now think that I may be exploring his techniques and do my own design, but based on his. We will have to wait and see.....
I have ignored these fabrics tucked away in little drawers, but now the gift of the book gave new inspiration.
Winter will be a great time to explore this.....


  1. Klimt has been a favorite painter of mine for years... the curves, the golden reflections, the swirls...oh you know exactly what I mean! Happy New year to a very generous soul. Blessings, Mary Helen

  2. One of my favourite artists also. Looking forward to new inspirational art in the coming New Year and hope it brings you much happiness!
    Thank you also for visiting and leaving such lovely comments over the year even when I did not always find the time to reply.
