15 Artists: Another Facebook Meme

Oh, how we love lists! These lists on facebook are like cocktail party getting-to-know-yous. The one that I've seen making the rounds lately is the "15 Albums that have stayed with you," or some such. You are supposed to take no longer than fifteen minutes to compile the list -- so no outside research! Heh. Making such a list does not appeal to me.

However, when I saw someone post a 15 Artists list, I thought it might be fun to try my own. Other folks stuck to painters only. I included photographers and one cartoonist. I came up with this list off the top of my fifteen minute brain, then searched the happy internet for images. I am a wee bit discouraged that my brain could only come up with two women. Anyway, here are some pretty pictures for you to enjoy.
