inspirational artists.

Two have caught my interest today; Samantha Keely Smith who is painting in New York. Her work contrasts light and dark, heaven and earth. The net does not do justice to the riches and depth she manages to get with those oil paints. And Rick Bartow whose drawings articulate feelings of fear and discomfort. He quotes an influence from Mark Chagall, but I find his work more reminiscent of Francis Bacon or the illustrator, Marshall Arisman.
