I've recently discovered the artist Eyvind Earle, admittidly because I saw a box of cards made from his illustrations in the bookstore. He used to be an artist for Disney, and I think he dose beautiful landscapes. I love the stylized view of nature.
Obviously I love this one because of the similar theme in my own "Winter Garden" illustration. I wish I had seen this sooner, because I had difficulty deciding what to do with the background.
