Today the Ultimate blog challenge’s suggestion for post topics didn’t really appeal to me that much, so I decided instead to list my favorite artists.
My Favorite Artists of Past
These artists are no longer with us, but they are my favorite artists of times past.
1. Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh is my favorite artist of all time. I am just in love in his work. I have never seen a van Gogh painting I didn’t like, whenever I see another of his paintings (or a picture of them) for the first time, I am always drawn to them irresistibly, and then it is no surprise to me when I see that the painting is by van Gogh.
Here are a few of his paintings, I won’t really try to pick my favorite Van Gogh painting, because it just isn’t possible for me to choose, certainly the first two shown here are high on my list though.
2. Claude Monet
3. Edvard Munch
4. Yves Tanguy
5. Piet Mondrian
Especially his earlier works.
My Favorite Living Artists
I don’t know whether Leonid Afremov or Iris Scott should be on the top of this list, I absolutely love the work of both of them.
1. Leonid Afremov
2. Iris Scott
3. Marilyn Armstrong
4. Alexander Gyamfi
I hope my Facebook Friend Alexander Gyamfi will excuse me for posting this photo without prior permission, but I wanted to share his art because I think he is one of the truly gift artists I’ve encountered.
