In highlighting the beauty of Ohio’s landscape, I thought I’d share this morning sunrise scene from the Spring Valley Wildlife Area, Spring Valley, Ohio. This canvas print hangs in a hospital hallway where art consultants specializing in evidence-based design (EBD) used this print to address their healthcare art client needs. This wetlands marsh captures an environment filled with an abundance of life and aquatic vegetation. A key term in EBD is Biophilia which recognizes humans feel an innate draw to nature and experience comfort and relaxation once immersed in nature. Realizing nature art prints help in promoting patient healing, hospital designers seek to adorn patient rooms, hospital hallways and waiting rooms with art prints of nature. In this wall print, the sun rising through the still air also gives the view a sense of hope and calm, which makes this an ideal example of art which helps the healing.
If you’d like to purchase this print just click on the image. I have more morning scenes in my Spring Valley Wildlife Area gallery. If you are an art consultant seeking more evidence-based design nature scenes, I have a series of galleries called Nature Scenes (Clouds, Flowers, Forest, Meadows, Plants and Trees.
