About: The painting is about a dream park that is dedicated to America’s National Parks and landscape painters of the Hudson River School. After looking at various parks in the United States I joined some of their characteristics in order to create a new park. In this painting I also added little animals and insects to enhance the idea of peace and beauty.

About: My inspiration for this project is a nearby park where I hike with my friends. Not only do I enjoy the beautiful scenery, but the awesome experience of being in such a place. Because nature is one of the most relaxing places for me, I tried to relay that feeling in my artwork.

About: Our park is located in the Cosmo’s infinite space This idea was inspired by our inner child fantasies and the unknown of the universe. The park is a kid’s dream with pastel colors and an eccentric toy land castle. Inside the park is filled with joy and wonder, but outside the park is the endless space and the unknown. This is a park that may come to life when future space exploration becomes the norm.
