Artists!

June 7, 2011

Not that I’m an artist but here are some I like (imagining if I could use any artist for a cover).  My artistic knowledge is limited.  Occasionally I buy paint and a canvas.  I liked Desperate Romantics and kind of liked the Dr Who with with Van Gogh in, even though he appeared to be a Scot (I forgive that more than the weird sexual politics the show seems to be playing at the moment).  Anyway, here are some painters I like.  I know there aren’t any women but then that’s completely the fault of my ignorance.  In defence the two artist who have offered to work with the press (Bee and Lisa) are female and excellent artists. Once again, anyway….

    Of that list I’d second Freud and Picasso… and perhaps your dad, I’m intrigued!
