Brad Gailey commented in my last post that my work reminds him a bit of Tamara de Lempicka. I know very little about this artist's work and enjoyed finding these images on-line this morning. Recently I wrote about my concern of becoming too stylized. Wow. Tamara had no such trepidation! Her work brings to mind the paintings of Diego Rivera and Thomas Hart Benton.
I have always struggled with a confidence in my artistic voice. It's good to look at other artists who just forge ahead with their style.
