Favorite Artist?

We are asked often as artists if we have a favorite artist or has any artist influenced you? My answer is truthful. I don’t have a favorite artist. But there is a time period in art history to which I am connected. And, that has influenced my drawings. Share your favorite artist or historical era.

I use stencils of Hebrew letters to create an underlayment structure upon which I build the composition. The word chosen is based on my interest in urban and nature environs. Color choices are made based on my feelings about the word. As I work with pastel, graphite and colored pencil the letters are concealed to the point where pieces of the letters and ghost images of them remain.
