Like a tea kettle in a Disney movie, there are some paintings which almost seem to breath with life.

Ted Harrison’s renditions of Northern Canadian landscapes are like that for me—the colors so brilliant, the lines so fluid, the scale so grand, that I feel like I’m sitting on a stretch of Yukon tundra every time I look at one–but you know, without the butt numbing part.

Now that is art,

So thank you Ted Harrison, you inspire me.
