I'd be nuts not to start with my artist bestie, Christina Baker. Christina lives in Nashville and is represented by Gregg Irby Fine Art. Follow her here.
Wendy McWilliams is another Nashville based artist that I follow. She has done some edgy and dark abstracts and is posting very feminine, pastel colored works lately and the sheer volume she is putting out is amazing and I want them all. Follow her here.
I love Pamela Munger's wide range of abstracts, still life and landscape paintings.

I have been following New Orleans based artist Alexis Walter for a while an and her earthy, textural work is beguiling. Follow her here
I am a major fan of Windy O'Connor's vibrant abstracts. She is represented by Hidell-Brooks in Charlotte, NC and Atelier in Charleston, SC. Follow her here
