Today I forced myself to deal with my Saharian-heat-laziness to post this wonderful picture. I like it so much that I couldn’t cut it to place it in the “polaroid frame” as I am used to do…I think it’s because I am obsessed by window-views.
To have a nice window view is for me one of the best things you could be blessed by. To wake up in the morning watching an astonishing landscape can turn your ordinary day into a special one.
Thank you Biene for sharing this with me ♥
I’m an 80′s music lover, so was inevitable that such a golden bookmark made me think to the Spandau Ballet song “Gold”.
In the Eighties I was just a baby but I was big enough to understand how famous Duran Duran were compared to the others. I know their major hits and I have some of them in my music collection, but I don’t ever play them…meanwhile I hear Spandau Ballets’ hits quite often.
Does it make of me a thirty-year-late New Romantic fan?
I’ve started to send my new illustrated postcards to my Postcrossing contacts, other postcrossers around the world seems to enjoy them, but one of them make me notice I put the wrong title on the Klimt’s Sea Serpents postcard…aaarrggghh!!
Well, noboby’s purrrfect…
Here’s the last illustration inspired by Gustav Klimt’s artwork, a detail of the “Tree of life“.
With its roots embedded into the soil and its top branches going to heaven the tree is a symbol to many faiths of: wisdom, rebirth, love, strength, friendship, redemption, and encouragement.
Klimt put very few leaves on his tree, and he made them to look like eyes staring back at you…delightfully alarming!
We’re having the coldest winter in 30 years, many Italian cities are covered by snow, even the mount Vesuvio is white although it isn’t snowing in the city. Today it’s freezing but I like to see the rain pouring outside the window.
The second illustration of the 2012 has been done, so here’s Sea Serpents IV. This binomial Klimt/Nextlola is working amazingly…well, at least for me…it’s an inspiring challenge to melt both styles remaining just Nextlola at the same time.
It was a long time I wished to find time to draw, actually when I decided to try to be a “real” illustrator it was to spend hours drawing and not feeling guilty with thoughts like “damn, I should be working now!”.
Finally I put other activities aside for a while to spend some weeks doing what I like most…and it’s such a nice sensation waking up thinking “ok, which one of my ideas will become real today?”…Danae is the first answer.
When I was seventeen I had the chance to see a Klimt’s retrospective in Firenze and I still consider it as one of the most astonishing art exhibition I ever seen: vibrant colors, amazing style, but what really shocked me was the huge amount of such beautiful paintings he made…somehow in my head I thought that such beauty could exist just in a “limited edition”.
