Invitation 2 Barn Owls 2018

This past week I renewed my acquaintance with artist Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) with a book among many given by my friend and artist Nasco. What I appreciated from this book was the journey of an artist. The Black Bull,(1900-01, oil on canvas, private collection), then the sophisticated decorative portraits like Danäe (1907-08, oil on canvas, private collection) and his mesmerizing landscapes of dense parallel horizontal and vertical colours.

A few years ago, Carole Segal would open her studio and provide a model dressed in the character of well known icons by famous artists. One of these was a model dressed in the fashion of Klimt portraiture. As an aside, I appreciated her kind words “we just started “ when I arrived late and tried to find my spot among many. Montreal morning traffic has not improved. Here is my version found in my studio.
