Hello fellow artists and art lovers.
It's been a long while since my last journal entry. I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite artists here, for whom I would gladly put my hand on fire, enjoy!
(In the order which I first discovered them)

Clara is a highly skilled all-rounder.
From wildlife, to portraiture and illustration she delivers excellent results.

Maya's work holds an 
alluring force which I can't really put into words.
But it definitely has something to do with her
cultivated disposition and the rare mix of her interests and studies.

Arnab strives to achieve the values of the masters, old and living.
Above all, his grasp of humanity keeps me very close to his work.

Pedro knows how to keep the scenario fresh.
The balance between light, form, composition and atmosphere prevents me from identifying what I love the most.
