Landscape imagery has a way that evokes certain tranquil emotions in the viewer.

In fact, calendars can be such a sweet & lovely present to your loved ones and yourself. A gift that will remind daily of your bond & bring a smile on their face each time they review their day.

Oh! And how fun would it be if we were the ones who not only curated but created the landscape art for our calendar with the help of AI?!

A ton of fun, we think! Especially when AI does all the hard work & we reap all the benefits ;)

Recipe# 4: Impressionist Landscape Art

The Impressionism movement was all about capturing the fleeting moment. It was about commemorating the flying of time without trying to slow it down or freeze it perfectly in a moment.

Instead, we allow the moment to pass & capture this very passing to remind us how beautiful it is indeed, the vanishing of time.
