Wouldn't you LOVE to climb in and out of paintings?
Would you be as brave as Olive? Would you climb in?
I would like to climb into the painting below. It's by one of my favorite artists, Gustav Klimt. But then I read, he covers the entire landscape with color "as if he is driven by a deep-rooted horror of emptiness" and this changed my feelings about the painting. It doesn't seem as peaceful to me anymore....
Would YOU climb into the paintings? Why or why not?
