The Ghostly Kiss

This weekend on a thrift-store shopping trip to buy frames for my next photo show (November 20th-save the date 🙂 ), I got a great deal on a 2′ x 3′ golden, wooden frame with a copy of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss” in it. It was only $12 at the best Goodwill for frames in St. Louis.

Now I must confess that I have always rather liked this picture (call me a sap), but not quite enough to actually hang it on my wall-despite its lovely golds and flowers, etc. So, if you are in the St. Louis area and want a 2′ x 3′ Klimt, it is yours for the asking, but you do not get the frame 🙂

As I have been walking through the hallway where I have the picture stored, I have been examing the picture, noticing the rectangles on the man’s robe and the concentric circles on the woman’s and the lovely flowers at their feet. Nice. I also noticed that in this print, they have made some of the golden rectangles almost out of foil. So, I thought I would experiment with positioning the picture to get some cool effects. And hence “The Ghostly Kiss.” Enjoy.
