the tree show...

...i saw mark ryden's book The Tree Show last night. his books are beautiful objects and i can only imagine what the paintings look like in person, especially considering the hand-carved intricate frames. they are works of art unto themselves...
so interesting to see the drawings that lead up to the paintings. i find the
drawings, with their collected images, as interesting, if not more so than the final
images. see the drawing also helped me see the details i missed in the painting,
like the shapes in the trees.
