The Pure Thought

Hey kiddies, 4th piece out of a total of 5 for art. An attempt at Klimt this time. I was trying to go for his "Gold" period when everything of his was still cracked out - but glittery : D. Quite a bit of inspiration taken from his "Nudas Veritas". The vine work isn't my idea, actually taken from another work I saw and incorporated into the piece. I thought it worked well at any rate. I suppose she's almost like Eve in some gold encrusted paradise. This is A LOT shinier in person. But anyways. The bottom says "ELLE" if you couldn't make that out.

Elle= en français means "Her/ She"

Likewise "Her/ She" in anglais = Elle en français.

I really like this, it's 60s and 70s-ish but it also reminds me a little bit of those Japanese woodblock prints. This is awesome!

Most people seem to get that feeling when they see this, but I've never had anyone comment on the Japanese aspect before! Very interesting, but I can definitely see what you mean. Thank you very much for your thoughts : D

This is very beautiful! It reminds me alot of the works of Gustav Klimt, who happens to be one of my favourite artists. You did a wonderful job! She looks absolutely amazing. How come you haven't done things like this before?
KeeganYoung's avatar
Thank you so much! I'm glad you feel it has the Klimt look to it, definitely what I'd hoped for. I think I've never done anything like this because I didn't know how people would react D:
Alwisw's avatar
You're very welcome. You did a wonderful job! :)
Please make more of this kind.
