Peter Sís, bees

[personal profile] mallorys_camera and I went to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, where we enjoyed especially the art of Peter Sís, who has a way with fine lines, labyrinths, and rich colors (especially his blues I love). His art was better as paintings on a wall than as illustrations in a book; somehow they were diminished in book form, which isn't always the case with picture book art.

Here's a picture from a book he did about Tibet (his father got lost in Tibet for two years).

And here's one of birds on a journey--beautiful as a picture, but the story was posey and precious in a way I dislike.

After visiting the museum, we walked a bit and saw these bees, doing their golden work on goldenrod. Thank you, bees.
