Some Expressionist Painters – Just Because

expressionist painters

Here’s some paintings about paint, just because. After the emails and comments from yesterday, I thought I would make today a little less controversial. No pictures of baby killing and no mention of genocide, just good old fashion chunky paint applied by great painters. I love most types of painting, from super-realism through to minimalism, but a good expressive work with paint slapped on and dripping off the canvas will always make me smile the widest :-)

Ah, I feel better now. I seriously need to get a new studio up and running. I miss playing with paint everyday!

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.
