Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

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!
