When I was working on my variation of Gustav Klimt’s “The Embrace,” I was searching for a high quality image of the painting. Since it the entire painting is usually referred to as “Tree Of Life,” I searched the phrase “Klimt Tree.” In my search results, i found what I was looking for, but scattered in with the many images of Klimt’s painting, I found numerous paintings of trees with variations on the style of Klimt’s. It occurred to me that Gustav Klimt’s tree has become a Pop Art icon… so I decided to paint some variations of it. Here is the first… the tree is painted with iridescent rich copper paint and the ground is iridescent rich gold.
