If this were a list of my favorite artists, it would include Pieter Breughel the Elder, John Singer Sargent, Andrew Wyeth, Jan Van Eyck, Odilon Redon, Johannes Vermeer, Gustav Klimt, Winslow Homer, Anders Zorn, Alphonse Mucha, Edgar Degas, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Albrecht Durer, and…about 40 others.
This is not that list.
What follows is a much shorter roster of artists whose work is either an inspiration to, or on a thematic parallel with, my artwork. In other words, if you like my stuff, you might also like theirs. Two are dead and gone, the others are all very much alive and producing. My only hesitation in featuring these folks on my website is that they will make my own work pale by comparison.
