Gustav Klimt inspired art quilt challenge

I belong to a small art quilt group of friends who started out by inspiring each other to create on the works of famous artists.  Our most recent artist to interpret was Guatav Klimt.  I am often drawn to nature, and while he did not do a lot of nature subjects, I did find a few.   He is most noted for his painting "Woman in Gold" and gold was prominent in all of his work as were swirls and lots of color.   Below is my piece.....

The background fabric has gold flecks and the background trees are edged with gold thread,   The birch trees in the foreground are colored with Inktense Pencils which are then brushed with water to enhance the color saturation.
