David Hockney's New Work

A bit of eye candy for you on a rainy morning (at least on the East Coast): David Hockney's newest work, spotted at NY Mag.
Hockney is known for his pastel-colored portraits of life in L.A. in the 60s and 70s, but recently moved back to his native England. I think these new paintings look like the English countryside as if it were Oz; beautiful, fanciful, yet based in realism. I really love his new direction, and it's great when any artist keeps pushing himself to find new inspirations.
