Nature and the outdoors were the muse for philosophers, poets and writers. Many painters would speak of its beauty. After all, many famous painters spent most of their time outside, recreating the beauty of nature on canvas. Think of Canada’s Group of Seven, Monet, Pissarro or Van Gogh. They are famous for landscapes, gardens and starry skies.
