corner view "my favorite artist"

I have many favorite artists. Of course the classics, Monet, Van Gogh. My Dad turned me on to them a long time ago. :)


But I do also have some friends that are artists, both of them are very amazing.

The one I met first was Dario. I met him probably before the age of two because he's one of my Dad's best friends. He's amazing at photorealism. Here's his website for more of his art.


And then there is Juel. I knew her in kindergarten and then I just reunited with her about a year ago. She's an AMAZING artist. Here's some of what she's done. She's only 14!


She drew the first one in pencil and the last two on the computer. But she doesn't trace it like I do, she just uses her eyes and copies it! How amazing is that? Here's Juel's blog if you want to check her out. She'd love your support. :)

For more artists go visit my mom, Theresa and her sidebar.
