Pioneers

I love this picture of pioneer life as painted by nineteenth century artist Frederick McCubbin.  It is idyllic to be sure.  Most historical accounts, however, focus on the innumerable hardships faced by these people.  I'm glad to see the other side of their life, which had to be filled with much natural beauty.

Like this Frederick McCubbin painting?  You can see more of his work at Google's Cultural Institute Art Project
