About Painting Paradise
Painting Paradise merges an engaging narrative with more than 70 images of Ted Harrison’s most important paintings. Rare images of his earliest work, including those first rendered in the Yukon, highlight the book.
Painting Paradise is based on more than four years of intensive interviews with the artist, his colleagues, and his critics. It also includes details discovered in letters, diaries, private papers, and in archived resources. Painting Paradise is published by Crown Publications in Victoria B.C.
The Collector's Limited Edition of Painting Paradise includes a giclee print of "Sketching in Paradise" which inspired the title of the book. It also includes a free DVD retrospective of Harrison's most important paintings. These are accompanied with music by Canadian composer Christine Hanson. Hanson created a a six-movement suite she calls The Cremation of Sam McGee, which was inspired by Ted Harrison and Robert Service. More about this at www.christinehanson.com.
