I am beginning a new feature on my blog (ART LOVE) where I do a weekly posting on art I admire. I am doing it to expand my horizons and learn more about other artists. It's not to say I won't do a posting on someone like vanGogh or Klimt because I will, but I really want to search out others who may be less known - to me anyway - and to look at more fine paintings. This year a couple of people have told me about artists they enjoy who were previously unknown to me (Caspar David Friedrich, David Alexander and John Hartman) and it felt so good to look up these artists and see their pictures. I too have waxed on about Canadian icons The Group of Seven, who are unknown to many outside of Canada. So without further ado, my first pick is "The Chocolate Girl" by Jean Etienne Liotard!
