The Art of Michael Whelan - beginnings
I posted about the term Imaginative Realism just earlier. It's a succinct description, I think, for the genre. There are varieties of course and the depth of discussion about art in and of itself could go on and on and on. But for simplicity's sake I'll be using that term.
One of the current Masters of the genre is Michael Whelan. He has been painting since I was born! He inspires like no other artist I've yet seen. I can't explain why. I really can't - other than perhaps my stylistic tastes are in accord. I appreciate symmetry. I appreciate minimalism. I appreciate color, when well used
Michael Whelan, an absolutely renowned artist in the field, has an amazing and gigantic catalog of work. You can see most of it here: http://www.glassonion.com/catalog/home.php
Every time I look at his pieces, I am inspired anew. I am driven into realms of thought that only daydreaming can aspire.
