Brushes with inspiration

I’m finding paintings (and other visual art) really inspiring at the moment. Three weeks ago, I went and saw Loving Vincent, which is created entirely from paintings. It was beautiful, unique, and moving.

I discovered I love luminism when I saw the Thomas Moran painting here.

I’ve recently discovered Leonid Afremov, a modern impressionist, whose paintings you couldn’t miss because of the riot of colour.

And I’m quietly drawn to Makoto Fujimura’s paintings, although I’d much prefer to see them in the flesh.

A few other painters/artists I’m following via the WordPress.com Reader:
