Painting Like Klimt'm thinking of doing a Gustav Klimt style Painting Soiree. I absolutely love Klimt's work, and think it would be fun to try to paint a version of one of his paintings. 

Since it's for a class, I would probably keep it as simple as possible - perhaps do the center section of "Tree of Life". Or perhaps do the painting in three classes on three different canvases...
At any rate, while researching Klimt online, I came across this lovely body art. Apparently it was done by a local (Denver) artist, Kandi King.

While researching, I also came across this site, which compiled some recreations of Klimt's most famous painting, The Kiss.

Pretty cool, if you ask me. Here's a version of The Kiss with Superman and Lois Lane.
