mark ryden,

so i was in Folio Books last week...
looking at some books, arty kind of books and...
i found an artist!! 
(i can't remember the name of the book :S)

this was the painting i fell in love with 

Rose 2003, 
Oil on Panel, 3.5" x 4.25"

this painting is from the series

Miniature Paintings of Sorrow & Fear

gahh! his work is so beautiful
the paintings are so intimate and delicate, and the themes innocence and childhood are ones that really appeal to me. i don't really know why, i think because it's something that doesn't last forever, there's something nostalgic and precious about it that i find quite beautiful.
and the twist of darkness about the work makes me admire it even more!

Weeping 2003, 
Oil on Panel, 4.25" x 5"
