Inspired by my visit to Heritage Museum and Gardnes, today’s Ten on Tuesday topic is 10 Favorite American Artists. Let’s talk art!
- Winslow Homer. I already outed myself on this one.
- Andrew Wyeth. And this one, too, I suppose.
- Norman Rockwell. His museum isn’t that far from us and it’s on my bucket list.
- John Singer Sargent. He’s American although he spent most of his life abroad. I’m including him anyway.
- Georgia O’Keeffe. Who doesn’t love those giant flowers?
- John James Audubon. I’ve actually seen originals of his at the State House in Boston. They are very large and very amazing.
- Ansel Adams. Not all artists are painters, you know.
- Annie Leibovitz. Her contemporary portraits of celebrities are amazing.
- Edward Hopper. His paints appeal to the photographer in me, they are so realistic.
- Bob Ross. Who can resist those happy little trees? This is a joke, of course, but I had to include him because my brother-in-law, Randy, has been mistaken for him so many times that it’s family legend.
I’m looking forward to reading about artists today! If you wrote a post for this week’s prompt please include a link to it below.
