Recently I was talking to a student about the scale of “Polish and Panache” as quoted by Michael Aviano. I referred my student to one of my favorite artists, Ron Sherr, as an example of a well executed balance of the scale. I truly enjoy these pieces and hope that you will too.
Artists to Admire
THE LIBRARY! I recently re-discovered this thing called “The Library”. I’m sure many of you are aware of this place, but for those of you who don’t, get on it! I borrowed a book called “1001 Paintings You Must See Before You Die”. I paged through one at at time and found that most of the “1001 Paintings…” were unspectacular. A lot of the images were chosen by their historical significance rather than their image quality. But just the same, I discovered a few artists that I had never heard of and really enjoyed. One of them being, Giovanni Segantini. The book displayed the painting “The Punishment of Lust”. The image reminded me a lot of recent paintings by Odd Nerdrum. Inspiration maybe?? I’ll let you decide. Enjoy!
