Art Within Art- Mountain

mother and child viewing a landscape
painting of huge mountains

G. Boersma
acrylics on masonite
6" x 6" or 15 x 15 cm

To me the mountains on this painting are symbolic for all obstacles in life we might encounter growing up. I like to think that obstacles aren't here to obstruct, but rather instruct. It only shows how badly you desire a thing and what you're willing to do to overcome it.

Sure it's a rocky road at times and the mother can take him only that far. After that the child has to find his own path, but with proper guidance and education at the very beginning I'm sure the young child will reach the mountain's peak. Look at his attitude, I'm sure he will.
