Well I too think 3 is too few, but I'll play the game by categorizing a little.

Historic Giants-Art Changers
Van Gogh

The Figure
John Singer Sargent
Rubens - because I love women

American contemporaries
Edward Hopper
Georgia O'Keeffe
Wayne Theibaud - SF Pop artist known for his confections

Relative Unknowns but personal influences
Bart Forbes
Skip Liepke
Bernie Fuchs

I agree...

Three is oh so difficult... Dan Flavin, Edward Keinholz, and Willem de Kooning are my favorites right now. That'll change tomorrow.
