Inspiration - Gustav Klimt

Apple Tree 1912

Hopefully my apple tree will be laden with fruit just like this in years to come!
Beech Trees 1903

I can almost hear the crunch of leaves beneath my feet. (The trees look like Silver Birch to me though).

Pine Forest 1902

Garden Path with Hens 1916

Isn't this beautiful? I love the hens on the path and the cottage garden plants especially the towering Hollyhocks. Wouldn't this make a lovely embroidery?

Lady with a Fan

The colours in this painting are so bright and cheerful. They remind me of Kaffe Fassett's paintings of oriental pots (below).

A Morning by the Pond

So still and peaceful.

Lovely muted colours. I can almost hear the waves lapping on the shore.

Just imagine relaxing under the shade of these trees with the distant sound of birds tweeting and bees buzzing. Bliss.
