This painting is called Night Light by Yvonne Jacquette. It represents my core value of a work/life balance because I want to be able to live life while at the same time having a steady career. The artist painted in a theater, people working, and a "moving" city to show that time does not stop and to prove that a work/life balance does not look the same for everyone. This piece is very appealing to me because I live just outside New York City and it reminds me of home. It also reminds me that I need to be around a city to survive.
This painting is called Jim Twadell's Place by George Wesley Bellows. This piece represents the good life because the women pictured is surrounded by nature and a home that she owns. The women feels secure and content. This piece adds to my opinion of the good life because it further shows how nature plays a huge roll in seeking the good life.
