I love paintings; particularly, those from the American Art movement. One of my favorites is "The Voyage of Life: Youth" by Thomas Cole, founder of the Hudson River School.
"Youth" is said to depict the stage of life when the young individual takes the tiller of life to start their journey. While the trip may appear to be smooth going from the start there will be challenges ahead bringing great experiences as they go forth.
Fitting as the perfect complement to an image of my niece at the threshold of her own journey.
