Danae after Gustav Klimt

Danae after Gustav Klimt

Wow, I can’t believe I finished this painting. I have loved it for so long. Of course, my inspiration was the original painting, "Danae" by Gustav Klimt, one of my favorite artists. But to actually try and recreate his colors and brush strokes. What a challenge. I am very happy with the way it turned out, and it will grace my bedroom. The story behind this painting…..she is a Greek Goddess, who has just been visited by a Greek God….and she later gave birth to Persephone. Everyone who sees it goes "wow," and then they have to look at it for a long time, and of course, most people don’t know the story behind it so they have to make up their own.
