Hello Stranger! and sharing my lates WIP!

Hello dear Peeps ~  Soooo very sorry to have been absent so much lately!   I am missing my blogger friends so much and can't wait to find out what you have been up to :-) 
I have been away on a little trip which I will tell you all about soon! 

This sleeping beauty is loosely patterned after the incredible piece ' Sea Serpents  IV' by Gustav Klimt
which I found when searching for another piece of his that I just LOVE called 'The Kiss' !
(You can see either one of these gorgeous paintings by clicking on the links)

So of course I had to try my hand at a similar pose, but decided to make this lass much more fiery, powerful, and passionate!  I am really having a lot of fun with her and can't wait get her completed!  At the 'working till all hours of the night' stage on her, and it's tough to go to bed, let me tell you!

I really miss you all and will be stopping by to catch up on what you have been up to soon! 
Hugs and as ever
S M I L E S!

She is so gorgeous, I am looking forward to seeing her finished. Glad you are back, now I will be absent for a week or so. Summer seems to be the time when people have so many other things to do.

This is an amazing piece. Probably my favorite yet. I love the way the flowers curve around her body.

Ooooh, you sure know how to create an entrance! This is absolutely stunning, and yes, I can definitely see how Klimt has inspired you in your last pieces...particularly this one!

Can't wait to see it finished! :)
