Humorous folk art painting of several young women skating, (sliding?) on a frozen stream, oil on canvas, unsigned. The women are all well dressed and appear to be having a glorious time while two older women look on disapprovingly. In the background is an old woman dragging a sled filled with wood on a frozen lake. The painting is framed in a gold leaf frame and is in very good condition, with some minor in-painting and two small areas of paint loss. Late 19th century.
