some artists I love

A very short list of people who make things that I enjoy looking at. I decided to limit myself to telling you only one thing I love about their work, because art is subjective and you will love your own things about their work. 

 

1. Wayne Thiebaud. Amazingly saturated colors, especially in the shadows.

 

2. Chuck Close. Photorealistic details and fascinating techniques.

 

3) Maira Kalman. Both her writing and illustrations are witty and sweet and are charmingly unrefined - sort of "the feeling is on the page but rather than refine it to perfection I'll go on to the next great idea" which, to me, is the most joyful way to go about life. *blog
