Running away to the city


Emilie Floge captured in all her glory by Gustav Klimt.

Today I'm running off to town to be a tourist for a day. 
I can't wait to see the Vienna Art & Design Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.
I first learnt about the wonderful work of Gustav Klimt when I studied Interior Decoration many moons ago now, and I was instantly smitten by the use of colour and pattern in his work.
I expect to drive my friend mad with a fair bit of ooohing and aahhing!
To put the icing on my little trip there'll be dinner afterwards, and a visit to one of my favourite stockists tomorrow morning before I head home again.
See you when I get back!
