I found this beautiful piece on an art disk a few years ago and have held onto the photo I took of my screen back then. In the art world, it's probably akin to a cheap painting found over some flea-bitten bed in a motel room off route 99. But I'm always captivated by it. It looks so... real. What I mean is when I look at it, I am completely transported to this place. It looks like it could be just an hour's drive east, or west, of where I live. It reminds me of some snow filled meadows that I've walked through in recent years with icy creeks bubbling by.
I don't even know who created this image. But I really like it. Whoever did it really understood the basics of landscape art and how art can be impactful. From a Japanese Sumi-e attitude, making the focal point small and overwhelmed by nature is just so spot on. I also love how it makes my eyes dance all over the image yet everything leads back to the 3 does. For such a peaceful image it makes my eyes and mind move.
And to see it in (iirc) 16 colors I find the whole thing very inspiring. I need to remind myself where that disk is again...
