Lately, I have been falling in love with Rob Ryan's work.
First there was this, which I mentioned in this post.
I still think it's lovely and beautiful and amazing. Unfortunately, it's no longer available in Mister Rob's etsy shop.
Then, I came across this gorgeous print -- amazing! And, this one IS available, yay!
I find it remarkable how much Ryan's work resonates with me. I really feel like so much emotion comes through in his works.
THEN, I went to pick up a Valentine's Day card for Tim, and guess what? They had a Robert Ryan card. I didn't take a picture, but it was (of course) sweet and perfect.
And, finally, I came across this from Chronicle Books. I wasn't looking, I just found it. A whole book!
I think that part of why this is all resonating with me so much now is that I feel very in love. I see love all around, I feel surrounded by it. And that's all very good.
And now, a letter to Mr. Ryan himself:
Thank you for making such beautiful work.
Now, can you just tell me where you've been all my life?
