Bed of roses

Sunday post: where I take the day off and post something from my website.
This is an experimental painting. I painted from my head without any planning, rough sketch etc... just went at it. I was really into Klimt at the time and you can see his influences. Actually, I'm still into him : ) Loved his sense of pattern and design.
24" x 30" / acrylic on canvas

I LOVE this! Have you done more? This is charming. Thanks for sharing it.

(As you may know, my favorite way to paint is "out of my head!")

This is nice and a great way to paint. I am always so hung up on producing something with a particular end result. Your exercise of freedom is such a great way to expand and learn. I love your end result, and colors are great.

Kim - I love this. I am a big fan of Klimt too. Nice use of the trees as pattern as well.
