Once again it is time for ABC Wednesday - that fun, weekly, alphabetical meme.
W is our focus for the week - hard to believe we are so near the end!
There are so many wonderful "W" artists:
Andy Warhol -( 1928 – 1987) was an American painter, filmmaker and printmaker. He started as an illustrator and was soon the leading figure in Pop Art.
James Whistler - (1834 1903) - an American painter, although he lived and worked in Britain. His most famous painting was one dubbed "Whistler's Mother".
Andrew Wyeth - (1917-2009) - an American painter, often referred to as the "Painter of the People". He was mainly a realist painter and his subjects were often the people and land around him.
Christina's World - one of his most famous pieces.
and then 2 Canadians:
Homer Watson- (1855-1936) was a Canadian landscape painter
(In fact, a gallery in his name is in Kitchener - 20 minutes from my home- and offers art courses, as well as an opportunity for artists to show their work)
Joyce Wieland -(1931-1998) -was a filmmaker as well as a mixed media artist.
One of her most famous pieces - a quilted piece.
And of course:
Wishing all of you a Wonderful Christmas
