Not sure how I feel about that painting!!

"You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain."
– Tom Hiddleston

"With God, a mountain before me is soon to be a memory behind me."
– Craig D. Lounsbrough

Good night and God bless. Hugs.

It also looks out of balance - the artist probably did that on purpose. Hugs again.

It looks like the kind of mountains where you would raise cattle when you wanted "lean" beef.

The foreground (the present) is definite. The distance (the future) is indefinite --- because it is!

Beautiful painting. Looks so true to life and I don't have to stand half way around the world to see the picture through the brush strokes. That is the way I like to see art. As close to the way God created it as possible. I realize many people see art, and the world, differently than I do, and that's fine. This is just my preference.

God bless you all.

This is an interesting painting; the mountains in the distance, the forest and the lighting convey a peaceful serenity while the boulder field in the foreground adds an element of roughness. But the boulders are more rugged and worn down so as not to seem too disruptive to the peacefulness of the background.
Here is some information about the painter:
Caspar David Friedrich
Sep 5, 1774 - May 7, 1840
A 19th-century German Romantic landscape painter, generally considered the most important German artist of his generation. He is best known for his mid-period allegorical landscapes which typically feature contemplative figures silhouetted against night skies, morning mists, barren trees or Gothic ruins. His primary interest as an artist was the contemplation of nature, and his often symbolic and anti-classical work seeks to convey a subjective, emotional response to the natural world. Friedrich's paintings characteristically set a human presence in diminished perspective amid expansive landscapes, reducing the figures to a scale that, according to the art historian Christopher John Murray, directs "the viewer's gaze towards their metaphysical dimension".
Friedrich was born in the Pomeranian town of Greifswald at the Baltic Sea, where he began his studies in art as a young man. He studied in Copenhagen until 1798, before settling in Dresden.
