Artists have long used nature as an inspirational focus in their work. The steadiness of a forest has been turned into restful backdrops or used to convey a sense of menace. Flowers, both brilliant and dull, have become focal points in paintings. Moss covered logs add whimsy to both pictures and paintings. Animals convey a sense of innocence in sculptures, on the surface of ceramics and paintings. Each part of the natural world has its own place in art. It is a collective whole of the world, and it lends its own sense of beauty and serenity to any piece an artist creates.
