When Theard van Heerde and Simone went on a camping and cycling trip they took a photograph of Villatoile in Dinant - Belgium. They gave me permission to paint this.
I just like the ancient architecture with the imaginative brickwork topping the stone walls.

Klimt, who died in 1918, had a great influence on modern painting. He painted the faces realistically although he went wild with the backgrounds - most of them gold and graphic. I have been studying Klimt, Schiele, and more recently Kobayashi and Liepke. This is my study of the Klimt style with thanks to a contemporary ultra successful American artist who has given me permission to post this image of her on my blog.
