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.

I’ve never heard of Ted Harrison. Thanks for sharing his work here.
Glad to inform! He is one of my favorites…
I totally agree – I love the work of Ted Harrison – his illustrations for Robert W. Service’s poems make them come alive.
So true…if I was PM, everyone who came across the Canadian border would be given a copy of the Cremation of Sam McGee…and made to memorize it 🙂
