It seems that everyone is about to do it, so here are three paintings I like, that could pertain to my cognitive type.
I believe there are many perspectives to get into a picture, so to say, and while I get the thematic appeal of a series, I am not always able to get the personal influence behind its exposition, so my stance will be to comment on my choice. This is also how I am.
My favorite is the seaside. Its presentation is simple, harmonious, and yet, there is a true freshness and purity of motion to it. Nature as we get to see it suggests a discreet depth. The scene is timeless, but truly infused with life.
The second one is also depicting a scene from the wild. It is quiet, peaceful, but the shapes and colors are standing out, as if there was an inscrutable growth to them. This time, it is the richness of the monochrome palette which gives profundity.
The last one is a family token, gifted to me by my SeFi grandmother. Again, this is really simple, but evocative. The paleness, the declination, the grace, all of this truly captures some untold memories. It is almost symbolic.
Unfortunately, the image quality is a bit poor, flat, and both landscapes seem to have lost most of the understated energy that I love so much about them, along with their sharpness. Well, maybe you'll get some of it.

Perhaps in a similar fashion to what Alerithonce reported, it is quite rare that I find a picture that properly reflect my state of mind. The ones mentioned previously on this thread are more circumstantial than deliberate, though they also bear sincerity. Anyway, I would like to share the following ones, as some dedicated examples.
You may have seen them already on my profile, as I like to use the opportunity to communicate. Do not expect much interpretation though, as my imagination remains obscure in its essence.

Unfortunately, my research standard was poor, and I cannot back up the source for this one at the moment. I solely remember that it was individually commissioned to illustrate a blog post on angels, and else. There is a signature on the upper left.
To me, it manifests the strange and universal rift that is life, where individuals are thrown at each other from the depths.
