I am greatly inspired by Austrian painter, Hundertwasser, who was also intriqued with the Austrian Baroque era's voluptuousnous. He broke away from the spirit of the human form and began focusing on the pieces that make up life and shaped and formed compositions from his ideas. Hundertwasser's compositions are compelling, mainly geometric type forms and based on his idea of "vegitative painting" and organic inspiration.

Klimt, of course, may also come to mind as his style can sometimes be seen in both my work and Hundertwasser's. Klimt's mosaic styled geometric collections seem to interest me. I enjoy his use of repitition but feel it is sometimes too much for my own style. I prefer to paint landscaped compositions including the geometric designs.

Hey Meghan -- I am also a big fan of Hundertwasser. I see some of his influence in your work, lower down on your blog. Yummy stuff. And a closing reception? What a cool idea. I've never heard of it before!
