Sunlit trees against the sky, early morning

  1. So right ! Bit of a generalisation / rant now… most artists don’t rise early ie at the crack of dawn so this sort of sight is something they never see; on the other hand the people (workers) that do rise early in the morning to go to work because they have to don’t have time to look at trees and stuff so they don’t notice ie they don’t have time to stop and look at the sights of nature. But this stuff does happen… Seems buying public galleries etc are only interested in neatly packaged paintings, kitsch potboilers, images, preferably photographic-ish, when nature isn’t like that at all… there is no order in the natural world… only the arbitrary order that results from the planet orbiting the sun… and so it is that humans impose their ideas of / beliefs in cosmos or order on nature when nature itself (whatever nature is) follows no order other than the chaos of cause and effect… the sun may rise and set every day but it’s never the same every day, never the same twice … all mountains eventually crumble into the sea 😉
