Lover of Nature


It has come to this, that the lover of art
is one, and the lover of nature another,
though true art is but the expression of
our love of nature. It is monstrous when
one cares but little about trees and much
about Corinthian columns, and yet this
is exceedingly common.

    • Some structures are worthy of looking at and saying, ‘that or this inspires me’.
      However, most do not have this exceptional quality.
      Look at nature in its finest and you can’t help but be touched be its beauty.

  1. I love trees! I love the art I see in trees… all forms can be found in nature, all shapes exist first in the natural world and the man-made art we have created can all be traced back to nature, even spirals and complex designs. It’s very intriguing…

    • When looking for a new home I was more interested in the trees then the house itself.
      This one included a great number and variety of them, I couldn’t resist.
      Thank you so very much for stopping by and your detailed and very interesting remarks.

    • Trees, magnificent as they are, will be seen for this some day, sooner or later.
      Thank you so very much for your kind thoughts on the matter. enjoy our beautifu Earth
