I thought I might share a video about this painting and found one that wasn't too long. It amazed me that it is almost square and shares something with the Mona Lisa -- it is much smaller than I expected! But the short video started showing other "embrace"-themed paintings rather than stick to this one ... so, no YouTube chosen by me to be shared here about this painting ... I'm sure I'll find some other topic to share a Tube about instead ...
(post edited 3/25/2017) --> well, participating in this blog challenge is fun and worth it! I hope to do the 2017 round but have not gotten brain in gear for it yet -- but this is an incentive: Yesterday I received an email about this post -- Alonzo of Artsy.net contacted meabout an exhibit at the Paris The Musee Picasso Paris called "Beyond Stars: The Mystical Landscape from Monet to Kandinsky", which features Gustav Klimt. He asked if I could add a link to an artsy page about Klimt to this post. With much pleasure, here it is: https://www.artsy.net/artist/gustav-klimt (enjoy learning more and exploring his wonderful work!)
Hubby's middle name, according to him is Kheil. I think I saw Khiel on his birth certificate or on his father's driver's license. It has been a male middle name for generations in his family. His mom kept saying she thought it was spelled "ie" but ...
There is the German shipyard. We both thought we'd seen it spelled the same way he spells his middle name. According to Wikipedia, that does not have the "h" in it, and is "ie."
Hubby says he has seen the name "Kheil" used on the Internet ... I wonder which is the correct spelling?
She writes books. I love her Pongwiffy books! The Fwog Pwince - The Twuth! and Wilma's Wicked Revenge are also wonderful reads / listens!
There's something very enjoyable about British books for children. So many of them are like those by Roald Dahl -- delightfully wicked without one iota of being educational or having a moral in them.
Once again, hubby put his two cents in -- I actually asked him to. As he was looking on the Net for a topic or two I could use as sub-topics under "K" -- he asked how to spell "kitty." He gave me a funny look. "Why is Cat with a C and Kitty with a K? There's definitely something going on here. In fact, where did 'kitty' come from?"
Well, "citty" would be "sit-ee," wouldn't it? But he may have a point. Where did "kitty" come from referring to cats??
