I have two favorite currently alive artist. Gary Jenkins (#1) and Wilson Bickford (#2). They both have very different styles.

As for super famous artists like Monet, De Vinci, Van Gogh and all the rest...how can you not like all of them? Each so special in their own way.

I have the same problem. My list is soooooo long!

My personal favorite though is probably Ansel Adams.

His work, literally takes my breath away.

Lets see now. I'm going to comment on this in several posts. My father was ( I say was not because he is dead but sadly he is becoming frail and blind in his old age. It's beginning to tear me up) a master artist and an University level art instructor. He took us through Europe and the world. So I have had the wonderful privilege of seeing many the great master pieces up close and have had the opportunity of meeting many master artists in person. This was something that was a part of my life and sadly I took for granted in my younger years, I didn't show enough appreciation.
Anyway so the first artist and probably the one who had the most influence on my life was my father. Edward Arndt. Ya I know no one has ever heard of him but If you where to enter my parents house the first thing that would hit you is that the walls are filled with 100's of work's of art. Their house is literally an art gallery.

This is wonderful that you grew up in such an artistically enriched environment.

I admire every artist out there, somebody that has the courage to start doing art just because they want I admire all of you
And I'm really thinking that , for my part I think it takes lots of courage to start, so admiration all around

It is no secret -

Wesley Dennis is my ultimate favorite. I grew up reading the books he illustrated and have always loved how he could bring his subjects to life. When he would do an illustration you could immediately look at in and KNOW what the thoughts and feelings were. He was able to bring that out in animals as well and that is hard. Not many artists are able to do that...

Robert Lougheed is a very close second favorite for me.

Both passed on quite a few years ago. :-(
