Re: Art

Two of my favourite artists are Gustav Klimt and Kandinsky.

Klimt was an Austrian Symbolist painter and I bought this print from Ikea in Spain (yes Ikea!) to go on the wall in my apartment in Spain.

Its called Water Serpent.

He did a range called sea serpents, sea urchins, water serpents. I have no artistic reason for buying it, other than it went with the decor of the apartment. It certainly was a talking point...

I just have loads of questions : what is that object which looks like it has been beached upon the shore with a bill like a duck and has a floppy pocket watch upon it

Why are the pockets watches floppy

There are ants on a tray-like pocket watch

There seems to be a solar powered block levitating

A dead tree growing out of a table

A nice seashore in the distance

 


To me, that`s the whole point @WispaRed7 . Everyone will "see" something different. While you see a duck, ants, and a solar powered block, others will think the objects are something else... 

I would have loved to have seen the surreal painting by the students in your Art class thumbsup

Pretty painting @Cleoriff 

Part of her hair reminds me of a milleflori paperweight very colourful.

Re: Art

That is really beautiful @Cleoriff
It's so detailed, must have taken many hours to do and a very fine brush!
Thank you I am putting it in my gallery ❤
