Visit to Dr. Baker's Lounge

Clint and I in Dr. Baker's Bistro at the Crescent Hotel
in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Clint and I had a wonderful week, we went on a little vacation in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and Branson, Missouri.  Wednesday evening we ate at Dr. Bakers's Lounge on the 4th floor of the historic Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs.  What a place!  There were so many blog ideas and I made a ton of pictures.

The painting at the Crescent Hotel done in a "Klimt" style.  I loved the painting
and the use of gold leaf, swirls and spirals.

The painting behind us in the photograph was painted in the style of Gustav Klimt 1862-1918, an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.  Klimt's primary subject was the female body.  He used gold leaf in his paintings and often a motif of spirals and swirls.  I really liked this painting in the bistro.

"The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt,

"Adele Bloch-Bauer" by Klimt sold for $135 million in 2006.
