Gustav Klimt

Something magical happens every Sunday morning as I do my relaxed web surfing. I always discover something really inspiring. This morning when I was checking out the blog site, Old Painting, I ran across the painting that is at the bottom of this post, "Old Swamp" by Gustav Klimt. I knew of Gustav Klimt. I think all of us have seen his painting "The Kiss." I even believe I have one of his paintings on another post of mine somewhere on this blog. After seeing "The Swamp" I wanted to know more about Mr. Klimt. I checked out some more of his images on Google Images and just started uploading them to my blog. They are all too gorgeous!


I am too lazy right now to name and date all of the paintings. I just wanted to call your attention to them. I also found out that there is a bio movie about Gustav Klimt starring John Malkovich. Have to get that soon! Also, I want to go to the library and look at books that have some biography and paintings by Mr. Klimt.







Ahh, the fine arts! Something about paintings, music and literature! It just soothes my soul!!!!

Malkovich, Klimt and art? I have to see that -- he's a favorite of mine. I saw a super-size one in a Paris Museum. I couldn't move.

Oh, goodie! I'd never seen that particular Klimt, either. Or heard of the movie. Do tell us if you like it or not.

Hey, you. I got your comment. Know that I am praying. And please tell Diane that I am praying, too. Keep me posted, won't you? Much love!
