Lovely, lovely painting...

I am posting this painting, in too-large-for-the-page, so it can be fully appreciated, by scrolling.

.
And here it is, in proper size, for the page.
.
And obviously, this is just the girl's face.
.
The painting is by the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt.   And the subject was a 9 year old girl, by the name of Mada Primavesi.  And you can read the story behind the painting by clicking here....
.
I saw a picture of it, in an article in Sunday's Wall Street Journal, and was taken by it.   So lovely.  So interesting.  The article writer feels the girl was saying to the painter:  "Hurry up and paint me...  I have things to do..."   :-))))
 .
Whatever, I just love it.

Thank you for your Happy Birthday Wishes!!!

I love the shot of just her face. Oh, to be able to paint like that!

Belated birthday wishes to you! Hope you had a lovely day. Sorry I'm late, just now trying to catch up on reading blogs and commenting. (The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.)

I hope you had a nice dinner when your husband was at his meeting. When my husband is away at the mothership, my girls and I have lazy meals at any time.
