"The Impressionist artist Monet was inspired by the art and gardens of Japan and created his own garden to reproduce the beauty. His work reflected this beauty. Expressionist artist Van Gogh chose fields of plants and nature from his surroundings as his colorful and vibrant subjects. Landscapes of all types, hold a natural beauty. Flowers are fragrant yet temporary. Capturing the short moment that a garden is in bloom, is a reminder how fragile life really is and reminds us to cherish every moment. Both gardens and vacations offer the viewer time to reflect and escape from the mind to the heart. Remembering the beauty of a landscape from travel brings back the memories and capturing that memory in glass also recalls its feelings of serenity.
