Waders

Painting Description

Although many people think that the Mennonite way of life is unchanging, this painting shows one small example to the contrary. The fisherman’s waders worn by the young man are an ingenious solution to the sudden “soaker” that can be experienced through the snow, which hides many potholes. I follow the young men around the bush as they empty the pails that hang on the trees. I realize anew that I am no young kid. Plunging through the snow that covers the uneven ground is very tiring. It is easy to understand why these young fellows take off their coats and roll up their sleeves, even in these snowy woods. Maple syruping is only one of the very physical activities that make these young men so fit, so strong.
