This picture from Golden Gate Park in San Francisco gives the perfect setting for this kind of contemplation. The calm water and arching branches give both a sense of peace, and of space. The shoreline and large rock are refuges, where the viewer can imagine themselves inside the image, taking in the scene. The lush greens and warm light also contribute to the welcoming nature of the scene.
I'm grateful to all of my patrons for your support, and I'm excited to put together a vision for the coming year!
