‘The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the Eyes of others only a Green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and by these I shall not regulate my proportions; and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the Eyes of the Man of Imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.’ (William Blake)
I am a bit of a fan of William Blake, an English artist and philosopher amongst other things. A very spiritual guy, he spent much of his life trying to reconcile what he observed and experienced around him, and how the puritanical church of the day interperated it all!
Anyway, in this painting, it is the simplicity and beauty of the relatively small bunch of wildflowers which dominates the scene, despite the grandeur of the rest of the elements.
