Craig Massa's: The Colors of Nature

Nature shows its natural beauty in many ways. One of those ways is by changing its colors all 4 of the seasons. In Summer and Spring, it give off warm colors and in Winter and Fall, it gives off cool colors. The sun's rays reflect off of the colors of nature making it most unique out of anything man can create. 

The artist here focused more on the essence of nature itself rather than the artwork itself. He uses cool colors to show a peaceful and calming atmosphere.
