Wading through a stream in the middle of a forest, a group of women walk home with foodstuffs atop their heads, the woman in front shepherding a bicycle. Ghanaian artist John Atta Mensah paints this scene in the impressionist style, using dabs of the paintbrush to capture the lush greenery of the forest.
