Thanks for sharing this peaceful scene, and the quote. The quote could be broadened to say "Art is but another word for feeling". Thanks for joining our challenge this week, Gayle!

I am smiling at the great quote, Gayle, thinking of my piece in the challenge. If painting is another word for feeling what does that make me? A disgruntled old girl lost in a parallel universe!
Seriously, I love the quote and, in the midst of endless heatwaves and bushfires here in my part of the world, the painting draws me in and makes me feel cool.

Oh What I wouldn't give to walk into a painting like that on this cold dreary day.
It's lovely.
