My favorite artist is Irishman Harry Clarke. Illustrator and stained glass artist extraordinaire. Died young in the early 20th century- probably from heath complications from decades of using acid to etch glass. He had a creepy streak as well and was famous for illustrating for Edgar Allen Poe.

This first one is not a painting... it is made by layering acid-etched glass...










One of his Poe illustrations:

Nice work indeed, would like to see those glass pieces in person. I really liked the Poe painting, it portraits the weirdness of his poetry. Thanks for the post.

The lion's-share of Harry's stained glass work resides permanently in Ireland. They are considered national treasures. I'd like to do a tour someday.

I'm actually with you Tiki on the Escher. Definitely ranks up in my top tier as well. I've always admired his ability to temper his technical and mathematics skills with true visionary artistic concepts. Pretty hard to wrap your mind around how his mind worked.


I've always wanted to take Escher's piece "Three Worlds" and execute it in stained glass a'la Harry Clarke using 3 layers of etched and sandblasted and painted glass stacked on top of each other. It's been on my back burner for years. Maybe I'll dig it out again.

How cool Justthemaid....I was going to post that one as well.
One of my favorites for sure.
But then I always like the 'moebius' strip too;)

That would be really cool if'n ya do that. Would Love to see that someday!?

Justin....will do if things ever dry out.
Got some paintings and some pen-n-ink in the works.
Hard to get motivated sometimes tho' because of the sporadic work.

Another favorite of mine is Maynard Dixon.Born in Fresno. Interesting story. Seen his work while it toured.
Awesome landscapes...Big Sky.

Frank Frazetta. He did allot of the covers and illustrations for the Tarzan books, Conan the Barbarian, etc. Sadly, he passed away this past year.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

Ed Mell is a fairly well-known painter/sculptor from the US Southwest

Remedios Varo was born in Spain, spent her young adult years in France (in the company of the usual surrealist suspects), and eventually move to Mexico, where she did most of her work. She died there in 1963 (at the far-too-young age of 53). Here's just one sample of her painting
