Individuals provide the image of an eternal moment

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

individuals provide the image of an eternal moment signifying how family and friends are the backbone to life thus providing that stability. Specifically the positioning of the people portrays the connotation of a classical family gathering; the idea of acceptance and peacefulness. It is obvious that there is not one single focal point upon viewing this portrait. Lake Time is to be viewed as a whole in order to experience the full beauty in life that it is displayed since these are the moments one treasures. Perhaps more importantly, the portrait contains that nature-esque background adding to its symbolism of life’s events. The clearly defined trees, lake, mountains, and grass are all everyday parts of life the one observes and accepts. The family gathering that is presented among this nature environment portrays a sense of imagery in terms that love and happiness are too apart of everyday living. The composition ultimately displays that soothing calm expressed in love and family.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
