    I’ve thought a lot about this since I saw the question and I’m pretty certain it’s Monet. I like his soft colors and I like all the flowers and gardens he does. I don’t like art I don’t “get” so abstract stuff just doesn’t do it for me. I also like wildlife artist Terry Redlin but I don’t know if he’s just local or famous. We have two of his prints.

    Actually it’s our 21 year old daughter.

    Probably georgia o’keefe, but I do like Monet too

    My uncle, Fred. The man is a genius with a paintbrush. I’ve shown photos of his wildlife art and people have thought it’s the real thing.

    Now, if you mean famous? I think probably Norman Rockwell. I like the humanity of his paintings – the thoughts of a simpler time, and the humor he puts into his work.

    I don’t have one.

    John William Waterhouse who painted “The Lady of Shallot” which hangs above my bed ( obviously a copy) and Edward Blair Leighton who painted “The Accolade” which I also have hanging on my wall. Oh, and Frank Bernard Dicksee who painted “Belle Dame Sans Merci”. They all painted other paintings that I love too. They are all considered” Pre Raphaelite” painters.

    My sister went to art school when she was young–The school of The Worcester Art Museum. She graduated 2nd in her class. Now she dabbles in Chinese brush painting. She taught me the love of art. Unfortunately I have absolutely no artistic talent but I do enjoy going to the Boston Art museum when I can.

    Here I am getting carried away again .

      Oh, I forgot about Edward Blair Leighton. I like his stuff, too.

      I think what it comes to, for me, is that I like paintings, not artists. And that’s what the craft is really about, isn’t it?

    I’ll be darned if I can remember which painter I was thinking about when I asked this question.

    I too like Monet, but I don’t think he’d be my favorite. At least, not every day. I like renaissance art, particularly the paintings of children and cherubs. I like Mary Cassatt and Degas and Renoir, but again, not all the time. I would usually rather the lines be defined.

    When I was a kid, I was pretty good at art and really wanted to become a painter. It wasn’t meant to be; I’m not sure I can even draw any more. It has been a long time since I even tried. Same thing with writing poetry and some other creative things. Makes me wonder what changed. Was it that I got my vision corrected? (I used to feel the strongest urge to draw when I had my glasses off, though I was legally blind.) Was it that I became a coffee drinker? The stresses of life? Old age? Or did a screw come loose up there?

    Degas, Vermeer, Renoir, Vincent van Gogh, Ruysdael. I should like Rembrandt, but I don’t.

  9. Nikki says:

    I don’t know enough about painters, artists to say my favorite. I love Thomas Kinkade paintings though! But again he’s the only one I even know off hand!

    Navar, Oh he’ll love that, he actually is a wonderful Painter. I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite.
