Today I’m going to post a number of paintings by Russian born painter, Pavel Tchelitchew. So awesome, I’d like to post every picture of his that I can find. But, maybe I’ll just add additional posts dedicated to his work later instead.

Love ’em!

Deer Eating Yggdrasil

DeerEatingYggdrasil

I wanted to save this panel and portal from Urnes Stave Church. Something about the way Yggdrasil‘s tree branches wrap and grow, with the deer eating at it’s roots, seems very beautiful and is exactly what I want to see today.

Max Ernst is definitely one of my favorite painters, and I especially love his invention and work with grattage. Check these out!

This is the way the things will look when moss, fern and forest cover the human world.
