One of the categories on our hope chest list includes paintings, wreaths, samplers and other wall decorations. This lovely watercolor was painted by a local artist and beautifully reflects the landscape in our rural community. I snatched it up at a craft show some years ago because the scene looks just like the view outside our back window. Abigail has loved to be outside, running around and chasing dogs and chickens. I hope this picture will someday bring happy memories and remind her of childhood and home.
