all about Art








Klimt's
'Golden Phase'






was marked by positive critical
reaction and success.
Many of his paintings from this
Period used gold leaf;
the prominent use of gold
can first be traced back to
Pallas Athene (1898) ,
although the works most
popularly
associated with this period
are the
Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer
The Kiss
During his GOLDEN PERIOD.



(1907–1908).
Klimt travelled little but trips to
Venice famous for their beautiful mosaics,
most likely inspired his gold technique and
his Byzantine imagery. In 1904,
he collaborated with other artists
on the lavish Palais Stoclet,
the home of a wealthy Belgian industrialist,
which was one of the grandest monuments
of the Art Nouveau age.
Klimt's contributions to the dining room,
including both Fulfillment and Expectation,
were some of his finest decorative work, and
as he publicly stated, "probably the ultimate
stage of my development of ornament."
Between 1907 and 1909, Klimt painted five
canvases of society women wrapped in fur.
His apparent love of costume is expressed
in the many photographs of Flöge modeling
clothing he designed.

in the first Movie Jaws. The Guy with the boat.

Isn't this romantic.















This was such a wonderful idea,
to name a Star for your loved one.
I thought I'd check it out.
What a suprise to give my Daughter.

Then I found this on the net written to a young man.
who thought he bought a star.
It appears you have just been a victim of a scam.
I felt so sorry for this young man. He just
wanted a name of his girlfriend on the star.














I have always love this song.
Remember Fred Astair?
Dancing in the dark, Til the tune ends,
We're dancing in the dark,And it soon ends,
We're waltzing in the wonder,Of why we're here,
Time hurries by,We're here and gone.

Looking for the light,Of a new love,
To brighten up the night,
I have you, love,
we can face,The music together,
Dancing in the dark.
Dancing in the dark,
'Til the tune ends,We're dancing in the dark
And it soon ends,
We're waltzing in the wonder,
Of why we're here,
Time hurries by,We're here and gone.
Looking for the light,Of a new love,
To brighten up the night,I have you,love,
And we can face,The music together,
Dancing in the dark.


















The Outer Space Treaty forbids all mankind from
claiming a a celestial resource such as the Moon,
Planet or a star, since they are the Common heritage
of mankind.You might have bought a piece a paper
with the stars name, but it is not "officially"
yours to own, sorry.
NOW THAT IS SAD STORY.
He had Love and romance in his heart.
Ya gotta love him.
