Some of my Favorite Artists

                                                                    Leonardo Drew
                                                                Number 119D, 2009
                                                 Wood, acrylic on paper in Plexiglas box
                                                              61 x 61 x 10.25 inches

 I have been wanting to do a post on artists I love, I finally decided today is the day.
Leonardo Drew is one who inspires me most, I love this man and his work, go here to see more.
Another man who has inspired me so much is Mark Bradford, his collage/paintings are amazing, go here to see what I am talking about.
A man who brings me to my knees with his talent is Lucian Freud.
You can find lots of information on him, but this is a place to start.
Of course there are many women on my list, Jenny Seville is a painter's painter and I have loved her work for many years.
Cecily Brown is another, her paintings are stunning.
Then there is one of my favorite artists ever, Kiki Smith, a woman after my own heart.
I could go on for days, but these are my current obsessions, and all but Lucian are alive and well.
I hope you enjoy the links.

The Art of Tea after photo shoot

I ended up paying a photographer to shoot this piece and I did not feel too badly because he too had a hard time and he had a much better camera than me. This is my piece after he shot it. No shadows and much closer to the real color, some details still get lost, but that is the nature of large paintings. I thought I would show you the real version. Click on image then click again to see more detail.
Always love to hear your thoughts.
