  1. Thank you, Phil, for giving us Hundertwasser. I love his style and you are a hard act to follow. I hope you will all be equally as inspired by Alex Janvier.

  2. Phew, Colleen!!!! You know what, I am really loving this series and being challenge by such a variety of artists that have come up so far. I see cartoons, I see a bit of Haida art and I even see that 'swirl' filter in Photoshop, Mai-Brit. Great choice, Colleen.

  4. OMG!!! This is going to be very interesting. I also see some advanced marbling & even some Picasso in some of his work. Not sure if anyone noticed but his birthday was yesterday. Fitting recognition & tribute.

  5. Excellent choice!! Can't wait to get to know him better through the body of his work...wish we could all take a field trip to see the exhibitions and to talk with him. What a treasure!

  6. I've yet to look at any of his work having got back from holiday today (and still haven't unpacked). I love the way we are discovering new things with this series.

  9. I showed examples of Alex Janvier's to some of my fellow CQ'ers this week and the response was varied from 'Wow' to 'How can you possibly..' - only time will tell which camp I'm in, but thanks for the introduction to another new artist.

  10. It's good to discover new artists: that's one thing that I'm enjoying with this new series. I like the bright colours, but for the moment I haven't a clue how I'm going to tackle this!
