Art Inspiration

Wow -- there are so many amazing and talented artists on Flickr! Two of my favorites are Amanda Blake and Elizabeth Bauman, both of whom do such enchanting, timeless portraits. I'm especially loving Amanda's small portrait blocks. Cecilia Levy's simple style also caught my eye. I like the materials she uses--like brown paper bags. The faces in Paola Zakimi's illustrations have such depth and character. If I had gobs of desposible income, I surely become an art collector. Wouldn't it marvelous to have these artworks to admire on a daily basis?
