Post a painting that reflects your inner personality

Post de Burgh on Wed 26 Jul - 0:54

I, personally, always felt drawn to paintings like this by the German artist Caspar David Friedrich:


Or something like this:
That conveys a sense of realism with natural scenic beauties.

Always striving to experience new things in life, inner peace and experiencing nature in its natural state, etc.

Good thought-provoking question. It would be something which combined natural beauty with drama and maybe an element of fantasy. I won't pretend to know much about the world of art, so I'll have to have a look . . .

For me it's one of the best painting ever. I don't get why people are in extase in front of the joconde who hasn't anything exceptionnal compare to this one.

This reflects one side of my personality:

And this another side:



The combination of stone building and woodland gives me a feeling of 'completeness' ? Something like that. Harmony, maybe.
