Artist: Thomas Hart Benton

Not too eventful of a day, so I don't think I'll write anything about it. I don't need to philosophize about life at the moment.

Just gonna post couple pics of another artist I really enjoy. I think you either like this work or you really really hate it. Sort of like Andrew Wyeth.

These paintings are by Thomas Hart Benton. Jackson Pollock studied under him a bit but almost went mental trying to paint like this. I like how Benton twists and distorts landscapes and figures. Everything tends to flow within his paintings, which is not something I usually enjoy but for some reason I do enjoy it in Benton's paintings. There's a wonderful lyricism and magic within these paintings that is just mesmerizing.
