A to Z April Challenge: A is for Artists



My plan is to use a list format for my A to Z April Challenge posts. Be sure to click the button above to join along in the fun!

A is for Artist

Here are a few of my favorite artists and one of my favorite works by each artist:


1. Claude Monet, French Impressionist painter, V├ętheuil in the Fog, 1879


2. Caravaggio, Baroque painter, The Calling of St. Matthew, 1599-1600


3. Vincent Van Gogh, Post Impressionist painter, Starry Night, 1889



Who are your favorite artists? Your favorite work of art? It doesn't have to be a painting. It could be a piece of sculpture or a photograph, pottery or even fiber art. Please share in the comment section.

  1. I love Van Gogh and also Dali. They both viewed the world in a different shift from center. :) Welcome to the A to Z!

    1. Thank you. I thought that my daddy had a pretty cool idea, too. :)

      I think that the Girl with a Pearl Earring is a beautiful painting, too. I hope someday to be able to capture images like these artists, either by brush or by lens.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed night!

    1. How cool that you collect art on Pinterest. :) I'll have to visit and follow your Pinterest page and will be happy to visit and follow your blog, too. I love gardening...well, more specifically until I get a yard where I can grow things, I love dreaming about gardening, especially flowers, but vegetables, too.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed day!
