    Early cave art is fantastic. Much of it was painted deep within caverns with no natural light. These guys were painting huge murals by the light of lamps made from animal fat.

    Christina's World is probably one of the most evocative paintings in the 20th century.

    "Bird Lady": Painted terracotta figurine of a woman. The Brooklyn Museum of Art, between 1906 and 1908, sponsored an expedition that excavated early sites in southern Egypt and brought back many objects of historic and artistic value. This is one of the most important and recognized of those. Dated to the Predynastic period, Naqada IIa c.3500-3400 BC. Excavated by Henri de Morgan at the village of Ma'mariya in 1907.

    Father Heathen is my favorite artist.

    I adore him as a person and his amazing mind and personality is filtered into everything that he creates - be it a painting, a poem or something that he's written. I love the darkness and abstract qualities that he infuses into some of his paintings.

    I'm very proud of him.

    These are three of my (many) favorites:

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/insaintan/fieldandwoods.jpg
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v621/insaintan/gasmask.jpg

    My favorite established artist would have to be of the musical persuasion and that would be Anneke Van Gierspergen.

    The Hallucinogenic (or Psychedelic) Toreador


    I spent about an hour in a Dali exhibit as an older teen
    trying to see the double image in this painting.
    And then finally "POP"! :eek:
    :D
    I bought a shirt of this print in the gift shop
    and wore it for years till it finally wore out. :(

    I love anything Salvador Dali.
    Always have.
