Landscape artists are the men and women who stimulate our sense of what’s real and natural in the world. More and more today, we all find ourselves spending too much time inside our homes and offices. Many of us cherish the time we get to spend outdoors, just taking in the sun and looking at the skies, because something in our hearts and minds go, “Yes, this feels good.” Then as our eyes come back down to earth we reflexively search for trees, grass and bright, colorful flowers. It’s no wonder that most of us choose to buy the glorious landscapes that artists have generously created for us. If we have to be inside, at least we can trick our minds for a few minutes when a scene describing the beauty of nature catches our eye. That’s why we especially need magnificent paintings displayed in our halls and on our walls.
