One of my favourite artists is David Hockney, British, a lovely pic of him and his parents

His paintings of people, water are spectacular and even though they appear to be flat for example the couple below tells a story about their relationship and their personalities

His pics of water are tremendous. It would be amazing to own one of these and have it on my wall. Alas they are way too expensive.

I agree with his water work, tremendous, just WOW!

The other painting (of his parents?) style is the compartmentalization of different colors without the dimensions given by light.
I AM OFFICIALLY IN HELL!

I live my philosophy, it's personal to me and people who engage where I live establish an unspoken dynamic, a relationship of sorts, with me and my philosophy.

Not his parents, lifetime friends.

Yes, when his paintings are without light and shadow, albeit there is some but not as obvious, these concentrate on the psychological aspect of the subject and capture it very well, I believe.

I saw a doco of him recently, tremendously interesting.
