Description: A painting depicting an idyllic outdoor landscape next to a large body of water. In the foreground, a few abstract women picnic on the vibrantly green shoreline. Their grassy knoll is surrounded by a few trees and overlooks the serene blue water that opens up to a blue, cloud speckled sky. The composition is rendered in an Impressionistic style with impasto brushstrokes and roughly blended pigments. The artwork is housed in a closed-corner, decorative, gold-colored wood frame with a linen-wrapped liner.
