Back in July we went to Vienna to see the art nouveau movement paintings, in particular Klimt and Shiele. I loved the way Klimt used gold with a lot of the decoration looking like egyptian hieroglyphics Which inspired me to try my hand at painting with gold... Of course this is not real gold but a gold paste for decorating china!
I love the combination of blue and gold
this plate was given to me by my son
So it was wonderful to make it into a work of art
