I have many favorite artists of different styles and periods. I would say my absolute favorite time period was that of the Pre-raphaelite/Victorian era. I love how they took their inspiration from poetry and put it to canvas.....storytelling painting! I love how the artists were able to take the time period and put to paint brush the perfection of realism and detail. Takes the viewer back in time making one feel as though they are there! here in one of my favorite paintings that I have hung in my studio. The Lady of Shallot by John William Waterhouse.

Evind Earle, a California artist (only recently deceased) who painted the California I see and not what my camera captures... somehow he paints the magic. This one is entitled, "Fire, Red and Gold"

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

    ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

I've always liked Monet, da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Degas, Rembrandt and the guy who did Dogs Playing Poker biggrin.gif . I never have understood what people see in Seurat. There is only one of Picasso's works I like. It is an unnamed statue, often referred to as "Da Picasso", in Chicago's Daley Plaza. Here it is...

Ooh! Beautiful artwork already! I, too love Monet, Renoir, Rembrandt. In fact, when I was an art student in college, I had to pick one old master to study. I chose Rembrandt and have several books of his works.

This one is in my studio too and is by Edward Leighton. I love this piece.

Maggie, I think that "Da Picasso" is supposed to be a dragon. I think that most people see what they want to in his artwork.

Rose- *sigh* Those pics are beautiful. I love them. Funny thing, that is what I cross stitch. Those kinds of period pieces. (check out Mirabilia, some of them are what I have done, rose of sharon, the dreamer, faerie idle, and many more)

MDF-we have the same statue in our town, actually, we did until two years ago. And I have to say, (sorry) I hated the thing. It was here for as long as I can remember. Ours was painted though, reddish orange. Of all colors...good lord.

But, Monet!! love, Picasso!! love, and so many more. But it has to be along the same period as the ones Rose has shown here. Very few from after.


Now I need a scanner, I want to put in some of the pics I have done and some that I have found.

Take care

Theresa! You and I have the same tastes in a lot of things, except Elvis! tongue.gif laugh.gif

You cross stitch those pictures? I bet they are beautiful! I would love to see them. Buy yourself a scanner for Christmas! wink.gif

Siverdragon -- I keep forgetting to tell you how much I loved that piece you showed of Evind Earle's! Breathtakingly beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I can only wish I could paint like that!

I mistitled one artist above. Should have been Edmund Blair Leighton. Here is another of his that is in my studio hung! I love this man's work! A wedding has just taken place and already the groom is called out to war! sad.gif

I'm glad you appreciate his work, CelticRose! and his name is Eyvind Earle -- my bad spelling... sorry about that. It was his work that encouraged me to take up drawing/painting about 4 years ago and thus led by a very roundabout path to my current filmmaking classes. I wish I could afford one of his paintings - or even a print.

Oh, I love Waterhouse too! I have a print of the Lady of Shallot, and the Crystal ball...
I also like H. R. Gieger. He did the concept art for the Alien films. He uses lots of greys, and black tomes... very dark, gothic....creepy, but nice

I also like Froud. He does very nice faerie artwork....

Silverdragon! You are in film making classes? Wow! That must be really exciting. Is that something you plan to pursue professionally? I would like to see more of this artists' work, Eyvind Earle! Post your favorite pieces of his work here.

barddas! I just realized that you part of the band "barddas" I didn't realize you were in it. I just thought it happened to be your favorite band -- which I am sure it is too! wink.gif biggrin.gif

I love faery art! I must look up this Froud guy. One of my favorite faery paintings is hung up in my studio too, but Robert Hughes -- Midsummer Dream.

Yes, filmmaking classes, and it IS exciting! It IS something I plan to pursue professionally -- I live in the right town, after all... cool.gif I was looking for something to combine the following facts:
1. I have LOTS of computer background,
2. I have artistic pretensions, and
3. I can't stand doing the same thing for more than an hour straight.
Filmmaking seems to fill the bill, with the digital direction it's heading... if I don't let myself get trapped in the cubicles of a large studio. Directing/producing my first student film is FUN!!! Post-production isn't finished yet...

Here's some more Eyvind Earle eye candy: "Herd of Horses"
