ABC Wednesday - L is for Lismer, Lemieux and other great artists

Once again it is time for the letter of the week at ABC Wednesday!

L is for many artists, like:

Arthur Lismer, one of the Group of Seven

Jean Paul Lemieux, one of my favourite French-Canadian artists

Ozias Leduc, one of Quebec's earliest artists

Leonardo da Vinci - who doesn't know about this Renaissance man?

Roy Lichtenstein, a prominent American pop artist

There are so many more, but these were a few I know and enjoy.

Be sure to check out the other great participants at ABC Wednesday.

Always enjoy your ABC artists! Many I am familiar with and many I'm not, so I get to learn something new and that's always good! Hope your week is going well, Bev!

This is always an interesting post to see the artwork, and hear about the artists.

I enjoyed your L Gallery. I wonder if your sizing reflects the painting, the smaller the image the larger the painting and vice versa.

Nice choices again this week. That first one just drew me right on in.
