This is the very large oil painting that rests over our mantle. I don't know how old it is. We love to hike and I particularly love forests, so I was really happy when my husband bought this years ago from an antique store.
The scene shows a path through the woods that opens out to a sunny meadow area. You can see the path continue into the depths of the woodsy background.
I play a little game with the kids sometimes when we're in the room with this picture. I ask them if they would continue down the path or stop in the meadow today. I get different answers on different days, and different reasons for those answers.
Either way, it's serene scene that I love. I hope my kids remember as they plow their way through life's forests that they should stop and notice and enjoy the unexpected meadows.
Did you finish anything fun this week? Be sure and join me tomorrow for "Finished for Friday!"
