No offence taken! I only started with Warhol to get things rolling. I know a few people who really like Kinkade but I find his work very repetative.Originally Posted by Critical;2798802;
I will have to look up some of your favorites you listed below. I would have loved Art History. You really must enjoy working in the field!
You met him?! Lucky you! I'm not familiar with others who do fantasty stuff either. There are a couple of other artists at the Greenwich Workshop I like. But not all by any means. Hmm. Bosch...violence and freaks...must look those up! LOLMiss Kitty - I'm very familiar with Christensen because of his Shakespeare paintings. I actually have the print he did many years ago for the Folger. I met him about ten years ago and he couldn't have been nicer. He's really the only painter I like that does fantasy-type work and I generally am not a fan of those artists who churn out work for the Greenwich Workshop. I hate all that "whales in space" crap. Christensen's large works of huge crowds remind me a bit of Bosch...you know, without the violence and freaks! I always thought his Rhymes and Reasons would be adorable in a nursery.

I like many of Christensens' art because of the humor. The Blind Leading the Blind, Resistence Training, Poofy Guy on a Short Leash and the cat in The Responsible Man. Some of his earlier works would be great in children's rooms too! I would love to see The Lawyer et al... hanging in a real lawyer's office.
*Note* Maybe I could request that everyone post a small pic of who they like, so we can get a quick idea of the work.
