this one, by Konstantin Vasilyev, is one of my absolute favourite paintings. and i think his very last painting that he did...
the old man stands like a pillar between the sky and the earth, a candle lighting his features, the owl - wisdom - perched attentively on his arm, and the artist's own name burning on the parchment at his feet...

Too many to choose from; but this one of Schiele's is one of my 'favorites' :

This is very hard.

I love Naval Art, i love bouagerioror (hmm), Haram/middle eastern style paintings, Any Artwork on the Artrenewal site.

Id like to have this one above my computer table. Just to look at it when im feeling small and claustraphobic. All i have to is just walk up and look over the edge and see that never ending ocean.

Is It Maya?? No!
Is it Lightwave??No!

Many great picks here. Love the Symbolists, Klimt, and Magritte has been a great influence on me. Hieronymous Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights is a lot of painting for one painting, a great value!

I love this one since I was a kid.

While not as impressive as some of the paintings I see here (many of which are personal favourites of mine, as well), this one painting is probably the one that has had the most impact on me... ever.

I fell in love with it when I was just a little girl and it's been part of my life ever since. I adore it. It represents all that a fairytale should be. John Bauer had such a murky, wonderful mood to all of his work that always reminds me of why I love living in Sweden.

(the topic is, after all, about one's favourite image - not necessarily the best image one knows)

I can resist everything but temptation.

I have to do an 'old master copy with a twist' of this painting. I picked the WORST possible painting to do (it's big and pretty complex) but I've really grown attached to it after staring at it for hours. The diagonals are really interesting, and just the amount of thought that has gone into everything in the painting really helped to learn what made 'old masters' so good.

Boucher - Cupid a Captive

Hmm, it's hard to pick one painting above them all.

This is one of my favorites
Hieronimous Bosch - The garden of Earthly delights. Its a triptych

Closer of paradise Closer of Earth Closer of Hell
