Dahlov was born in Windsor, Vermont on November 12, 1917. Dahlov is currently alive and lives in the Georgetown, Maine. She has an interest in printmaking, and does mostly painting. In the Farnsworth Museum Dahlov has two paintings. The paintings are A Walk On The Wild Side and Bull Of Dreams. Dahlov likes to paint farm and jungle animals. Ever since she was little she liked to paint animals.

I like that Dahlov paints animals and mostly I like her farm paintings. The painting I like the most is Four Winter Stallions. She inspires me because I like all the color she uses and that she does a lot with horses. I also like that she makes her paintings look real. I would like to do screen printing as my project for her. I think that I might put a story in the screen printing that I am going to do. The screen printing of a unicorn with the story in its body is what inspires me to do this. I am going to use a stencil and a roller or squeggie to screen print .My screen printing will have lots of realistic colors.

Claes Oldenberg by: Jillian Page

Clothes pin, 1976
Sponge bridge and cherry, 1985-1988

Claes Oldenberg was born in Stockholm, Sweden on January 28, 1929 and is currently alive. Claes makes larger then life sculptures from paint, steel, and clay, and his style of art is Pop Art. Oldenberg’s art is similar to Andy Warhol, and Jim Dine's artwork. Claes studied art at the Yale University.

Claes inspired me with his large sculptures and it seemed so interesting to make big sculptures like Claes did. The piece of art by Claes that inspires my project is the large spoon with a cherry on it. I decided to make a sculpture and the materials that I will be using for my sculpture will be mostly clay and paint. My sculpture will be of a cat because I enjoy cats. The cat will be brown, with blue eyes, white paws, and a grey tail. My cat will not be as large as his sculptures, but it will be about the size of a real cat because I don’t have the years and time it took Claes to build his beautiful art work.
