Ok that worked.

The colors brought goose bumps to my arms. Just viewing it made me happy.
It's in a museum not far from me.

Something about seeing these impressionist up close and personal. I understand that dream like feeling.

My son is an artist and I have copies of a van Gogh and a Monet hanging in my living room.
Also original art by him.

Maybe post some of your son's art? Of course I understand if you don't want to.

All the big cities I've visited, never felt motivated to go to a gallery. I will now though.

The first Artist whose work I fell in love with is Carravaggio.

(Milan, 28 September 1571 - Porto Ercole, 18 July 1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta and Sicily between 1593 and 1610. He is commonly placed in the Baroque school, of which he is considered the first great representative.


My favorite artist or at least the first artist whose work I first fell in love with was Caravaggio.





He is a Baroque Artist. This guy was amazing.


I love artists who can make a painting look like a photograph. Wow, that is talent!

I just Googled her. Some of those paintings are intense. Really good but I couldn't have them in my house. Seriously emotive. Heavy man! (Good though).

I wish my art space was covered in paintings from her and menton Matthews 3 along with dave stoupakis and Ben Templesmith. I also love the work of James O'Barr its so sad and beautiful and somber. All those artists inspire me!

I have many favourites, but I recently copied (painted) 'The Scream' by Edvard Munch onto a tile. There is another painting depicting a scene of madness, can anyone remember the title of the painting or the artist's name (maybe 16th century)?

I found it (below). This one fascinates me.

Here's an interesting proverb from the 1500's.

"One woman makes a din, two women a lot of trouble, three an annual market, four a quarrel, five an army, and against six the Devil himself has no weapon."

Aside from being amazingly talented and producing masterpieces that essentially look like photos, I love how he captures the emptiness. The landscapes are actually from the area where i grew up so I have a strong connection with them
