Klimt and Egon

This is my lastest painting. It's kind of study using references from other paintings . I combined the painting from Gustav Klimt and the landscape one from Egon Schiele. I love both artists' works. After I had finished painting, I felt like I should know more about their biographies, so I read more about both of them. Apparently, I found out that Egon, who was inspired by his mentor-Klimt, died when he was just 28. If you want to know more, just go That made me feel sad for this young talented artist. However, I'm glad that I combined the paintings. It has become an homage to both artists.

Yep, James. This is also acrylic. I don't know the actual size, but it's definitely bigger than 19x24" and I think I'll hang it in my place...(^.^")

And I meant that in a "physically entering your apartment and taking it home" sort of, but less creepy?
