I'm enchanted by the landscapes of 19th century Russian artist Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin. I want to walk into these paintings and explore these beautiful Russian landscapes. You can almost feel the sunlight and touch the moss. His painting really convey a majestic sense of scale with towering trees, billowing clouds, and tiny wildflowers. More of Shishkin's paintings can be seen at the State Tretyakov Gallery website.
