a little more progress...

i recently watched a documentary on gustav klimpt and have really been enjoying the symbolism he used in his paintings.  the passion and respect he had for women is very evident in his work...  i also very much appreciate his use of metallic gold paints in some of his work...  i am going to incorporate this technique somehow in my own paintings.

2nd painting: promise

i just wanted to share a few photos from my week-end so far and also let you know that my second painting is coming right along...  her name is, promise...  i think she comes from the water and has something to do with sailors or sailing...  i'm not quite sure if she is good or evil...  temptress or fragile and sweet...  she may be both...  i will know more when she is finished.
