I've looked at every artist's work linked from Carol Marines's blog list. Her paintings really appeal to me. I wanted to see who she looks at. After seeing so many similarities in so many painters I realized that, though I want my paint to look like what she and so many artists are getting, I don't want to fall into the mold they all seem to be in. How many bowls of fruit or stacks of cup paintings does this world need? How long could I sit and look at a painting like that; and do I even want another litter of puppies?
