I can't seem to ever get enough of Klimt. He is very hard to
paint with because the details and symbols are endless.
I think I really like to challenge myself with his style.

With "An Asian Evening with Klimt", I used his painting 
"Expectations" for the wall. I always loved this piece.
He did the full body painting and just the portrait so I thought
this would be a nice piece to design this painting around.
The lovely lady is from another of Klimt's works
but I change her face to be Asian and added the gown.
Of course I wanted to use as many tones of red that 
I could for this piece.

I love Asian art and all of the beautiful details they use.
I researched asian furniture and accessories for this composition 
and it seemed that every single element was full of detail.
Needless to say, this painting took a "Very" long time to paint!

Enjoy!

  1. K. this is wonderful. The composition & colors are fantastic. For a subject that is still, the painting is swirling with life.

  3. Anonymous,

    I wish you would email me so I can formally thank you for informing me about this. It is nice to know that fans are looking out for artists as it is not always possible for us to find all the art thieves out there. I have been in touch and we are working on a resolution. Thanks so much again for your concern and time in contacting me.
    Best wishes, Madison
