Sunny Trees- Klimt inspired
As as self-taught artist, I have been excited to learn about various techniques and have enjoyed researching the many artists who influence my work- some of whom I discover when someone mentions a similarity. These trees are modeled after work I've seen by Klimt- himself not known as much for his own trees but for the "Golden Phase" of his work where he used a lot of gold leaf. The bright sun reflecting off of these trees reminded me of just that. Size 18x24, acrylic on canvas. Available for purchase from J. Todd Gallery in Wellesley.
