Klee Castles

I was inspired by this piece by Klee, titled, Castle Garden.

I have my castles done, now I need to do the background. I am so taken with how he paints these geometric forms that add depth and complexity to this piece.

I finished the other piece. I am not sure if it will be my final choice for the chartreuse colorplay. I will probably do another one or two.

Tonight, we took Steph and Jack out to dinner for their birthdays. We went to The Screen Door, a local restaurant that serves low country southern food. They use local meat and veggies as much as possible. You have to go early and wait in line to get in as they do not take reservations. The food was delicious.

I will be enjoying time in my studio this week-end, staying out of the incessant rain.

    Oh, how I love Paul Klee, I have done a couple of pieces which were inspired by his work. I have them posted here. http://connie-makeeverythingright.blogspot.com/2010/04/finished.html

    Since that one I have done several others too. Such great inspiration. I love your interpretation.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I love you castles. I have been a fan of Klee’s for a long time and love how you interpreted his work. I hope the sun shines for you this weekend. It is sunny here, but 10 miles in each direction got thunderstorms – odd. Have a wonderful weekend in the studio.

    I like those little castles! Pamelala told me just a week ago that my work reminded her of Klee. It’s funny how things pop up in multiples.
