    Favorite artists

    I recently chanced upon the art of Edward Lamson Henry who paints about early American life. I find the theme and his style very appealing...

    His bio on wiki
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Lamson_Henry

    Some of his paintings via a google search....

    Will Eisner's works has that lovely patina of age on them that I really love, and that black and white is so well done.

    Here's a link to Australian (poster) artist Ken Taylor, whose works I worship. I wish I had the patience for all those clean lines.

    I'd have to say my favorite is Ver Meer. There is another guy I like as much, I posted one of his paintings on facebook recently but I can't remember his name. Eugene something.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/

    Ver Meer - wasn't the Milk Maid one of the more famous paintings by this Dutch Painter?

    Johannes Vermeer, the 17th Century Dutch painter, best known for painting 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'. I love his work.
