one last little guy before I go large tomorrow in studio. The wind is howling right now and will continue through tomorrow so plein air is on hold. (yeah the van would work but I'm staying in studio) I've been contemplating what makes an artist recognizable as an individual. Think about it. All the greats have a destinguishable body of work. When you see it you know who done it! Aside from the pop art stuff(find a niche and fill it) I'm intrigued by landscape painters that are identifiable by their work. What makes this so? Subject matter.....application....perspective....composition... palette....indeed all these things describe the artist. The ones we remember......did their own thing. Just a thought.....but one that I continually have.
