    I enjoy Dali the best. His far out paintings have always inspired me and the colors, WOW!

    http://www.salvadordalimuseum.org/


    I also enjoy Van gogh quite allot also.

    The real master though is Da vinci overall for his works blow me away as well as his sculptures, inventions and frescos.

    It's a toss up between Manet and Sargeant.

    He gave reality extra strength and dynamism by exaggerating the colours and characteristics of his subject. He had great esteem for the richly-textured brushstrokes of Monticelli, the realism of Millet and Daumierand his paintings shoed it. What a wonderfull world he lived in and he shared it beautifuly with us. To bad he never sold any of his works while he was alive.

    I'm in love with William Blake. His poetry coupled with his beautiful, beautiful art just continues to intrige me.

    I've always like Remedios Varo, a spanish surrealist from the 1950's.

    I also like Donald Roller Wilson.

    Tyger tyger, burning bright,
    In the forestry of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye,
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
    I love his lucifer, where he is seen before the perversion. Even when the colors are no longer as sharp as intented, it's magnificent.

    Gerhard Richter.

    However, Clive Barker still draws the strongest psychological corellation.

    Clive Barker, "Jesus"

    Even though my rabid Tolkien-fan days ended with the release of Peter Jackson's movies, illustrator Ted Nasmith remains my favourite painter and landscapist.

    http://www.tednasmith.com/

    Some favourites:
    - Eärendil Searches Tirion
    - The Ships of the Teleri Drawn by Swans
    - Tuor Reaches the Hidden City of Gondolin
    - Flying Toward the Lake

    Emily Carr is one of my favourites for her modern impressionism. I like the painting of "The Lonely Pine." :-D

    Marcus Sanders and Sandrow Birk did a rendition of Dante's Inferno. It is the painting used for the cover of that book that makes Sandrow Birk my favorite artist.

    Escher is a great print but my favorite painter is a guy named Jose Reybal. I have 3 of his paintings hanging here. I dunno why but that's part of the allure I guess.

    I wouldn’t necessarily say he’s my favorite artist, but I greatly enjoy Cezanne’s paintings. You can see a progression over time, as he challenges the impressionist ideas and opens the door to various post-impressionist movements.
