I still love this thread.
A few more to add:
I don't think anyone mentioned Sanford Robinson Gifford. Photos truly do not do his work justice. Each time I have viewed one of his paintings I have been drawn to it.
I just discovered William Bliss Baker recently and I am so glad I did. Unfortunately, he died prematurely at the age of 27 (in the 1800's). Sad story.
Fallen Monarchs, Woodland Brook, Morning after Snow,
and Autumn Woods and Pasture
are some beautiful examples of his work.
Jennifer McChristian is a fantastic artist.
John Felsing has some beautiful and moody work.
is one of many stunning paintings by Felsing.
By the way, for those who don't know, this thread is under the sticky titled, "Hall of Fame- Most Helpful/Useful threads."
I definitely hope this thread continues...
