Christopher's multi figure paintings are so amazing. the way they entwine and swirl. They are pretty big in size as well. This one is 6' tall. I love the cools of the flesh as well as the sleeping expressions of the model. Absolutely amazing!
J. Lipking's work is so soft and subtle. His skin tones are absolutely amazing. He is a very prolific painter and a really nice, quite guy. When I took his workshop Fall 09, I was surprised how small, slow and methodical he works.
This is a compilation of living master painters that inspire me to paint. I only consider the absolutely best for this blog. Enjoy the absolute beauty of the Brilliant, Grogeous, Talented and Fabulous!
- Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others" by Marianne Williamson
