Oil painting on canvas of a landscape. White houses with red peaked roofs appear at center within dense foliage. Below, a small hill slopes from lower right to bottom left. In the distance, dark green trees line a band of flat ground next to a body of water. Rolling hills appear at right and left in the water at the horizon line. The top quarter of the canvas contains a partly cloudy sky.
