As August winds down and September looms larger, the summer FOMO heebie-jeebies are hitting hard. Have you gotten to every fun thing you wanted to this summer?
Chances are, you haven’t. We know we haven’t. Three months is never enough time to have all the fun there is to have. These eight paintings pretty much sum up our summer bucket list. Well, sort of.
1. Go for a randomly clothing-optional picnic
Because who doesn’t like eating naked with some very-dressed friends? Luncheon on the Grass, Édouard Manet
2. Go for a picnic in…er, on…the mountains
That looks comfortable. Picnic in the Mountains, Fernando Botero
3. Take a hike to see some wildlife
“Back away now, kids. They’re more scared of us than we are of them.” Bears in the Path (Surprise), William R. Leigh
4. Attend that one rich friend’s fancy garden party
Turns out cherubs make excellent cater waiters. Feast of the Gods, Hans Rottenhammer
5. Go sailing
“Hey guys, what’s kraken? Ooh, nice boat, lemme borrow it.” The Kraken as Seen by the Eye of Imagination, Edward Etherington
6. Go skydiving
Just…don’t be an Icarus. Wear a gol-dang parachute. The Flight of Icarus, Carlo Saraceni
7. Catch some last-minute rays at the beach
Gotta keep that healthy glow goin’ for a few months. Reclining Bather, Roy Lichtenstein
8. Visit an amusement park
Cedar Point, Six Flags, Hell-O-Rama, wherever. Fun is what you make it! The Violent Forcing of the Frog, Hieronymus Bosch
