Painting of the Day: "Panacea"

"Panacea" by Kelly McKeran
  "Panacea"; the cure all to a disease.

  This somehow reminded me of Gustav Klimt's "Goldfish". However, after staring at it for a long enough time, I figured it was just because of the fishes and the red hues used that had me make that connection between the two works.

  Kelly McKaren does have an Art Nouveau style, though. I love the simple grey-blueish background with the beautiful salt effects on it. Her sensual expression is complemented with the pure red washes, and there is just enough details in the piece to keep you engaged.
