• Waylon Jennings.
  • Weird Al Yankovic, music artist! I think that counts...
  • By far, it is Thomas Hart Benton. He sculpted as well.
  • My favourite American Artist is Norman Rockwell.
  • Thomas Kinkaid
  • I have to say Grandma Moses...She lived about 30 miles from where I live.
  • I have to go with Norman Rockwell. The guy captured Americana like nobody else.
  • june carter deserves much respect
  • its a toss up between Bill Clinton(plays the sax but wears the slacks) and George Bush(he has a way with words and his facial expressions are hilarious) i love their works of art though... i call them graffiti on my hemp paper. although its really a tie between everyone on the planet!
  • Aldo Luongo I like some of his works ... not all, but many are great ... they have so much depth of feeling and love ... The man and some of his work ...
  • Karen Carpenter. America lost one of its great talents when she died in 1983.
  • That is a tough question, there are so many to choose from. My personal hero is Barnett Newman, an abstract painter of the Abstract Expressionist generation, who also wrote great polemic essays ("A painter paints so he has something to look at. Sometimes he also has to write something so he can read." - "Aesthetics is to the artist as ornithology is to the birds." (Newman even studied ornithology himself). "The sublime is Now." He was famous for his paintings with only a color filed and some narrow vertical lines or fields of color that were called "zips". He left a life work of only c. 140 paintings and about the same number of works on paper, plus c. 40 prints and 8 sculptures, but he will remain as one of the most significant painters of the 20th century. By the way, I saw that a certain Thomas Kinkade was mentioned here. I do not consider him a painter at all. The best figurative painter still active is Alex Katz, in my opinion.
  • I love Grant Wood
  • Probably the sculptor Alexander Calder
  • gustave klimt
  • I think Frank Lloyd Wright is at the top of my list.
  • Ansel Adams.I have yet to see any other photographs quite like his.
  • I have many "Favorites" , but I really love Bev Dolittle's work.!=A&ID=612
  • I love Jackson Pollock's work. I paint and draw myself and my work is often detailed and meticulous (I love doing portraits). I love Pollock's work because it is so wild and free and different. Many people criticise it as they see it as simply paint drippings or splatters, with no skill or thought involved. I see it as a man expressing his feelings, whether passion or despair. Some of his pieces are amazing.
  • Thanks Marguerite! I do find portrait work really rewarding. I have tried some techniques like Pollock on canvas before though. Was really great to use free brushtrokes without thinking about it too much. Also tried the splatter thing - highly recommended for days when you feel angry or frustrated!
  • Hello Keithold, :) I would have to say Walter Anderson.
  • Roy Lichtenstein
  • Andy Goldsworthy
