As a student of art and art history I was especially impressed by certain painters from the Italian renaissance era. One was Caravaggio for his ability to capture qualities of light with paint, another was Titian because of his expressive use of color. Here's an artist that seems to have the DNA of both of those guys rolled into one. His name is Mike Savlen. Check out Mike's work at savlenstudios.com. I think you'll enjoy his creations.
