Some landscape paintings leave me feeling detached, unable to relate. I think it might be the distance, the painter's faraway point of view - I'm not sure. But, at any rate, the eleven I've chosen for today's post are landscapes that will involve the viewer in one way or another. At least I hope so.
I'll be doing a post on seascapes in the New Year and that's why no Turner paintings here. I feel he'll fit in better then. My favorite Turners always involve the sea. I know I selected a fairly subdued Van Gogh for my collection, but I love this one.
Remember that these are not the ONLY landscapes I love, just the twelve I love today.
