I've been putting in long hours on this latest series of à la Klimt paintings. So far, I've done two interpretations of the Madonna and the third one is simply two women. I've done this sort of composition before...I like the impression of comfort and trust the pose seems to create. The women may represent sisters, friends, or even mother and daughter. Whatever the relationship it is one of closeness.
I call this piece "Almost Gold". I've used gold leaf and various liquid gold and metallic paints on a wood box frame. The shot below gives a bit more detail.
