Below is a print of Krenkel's that I think was published by the legendary Middle Earth Publishers back when they published Frazetta. Roy imagines when the world was a garden. I want to live in the worlds he created.

When the World Was a Garden
I think Roy Krenkel was a man who felt out of time and place (as many of us do) and used his art to transport himself. That he ended up transporting us with his work was a bonus, but much of his work was created as a personal vision, imagining worlds far more dangerous and far more interesting than ours. Selling his work was a nuisance that came with the territory.
