Oil landscape painting on canvas illustrating a tree growing out of a ditch in a pasture setting. In the simple composition, the ditch separates the painting into a top and bottom half. The large tree, which is slightly off center, is balanced compositionally by a bush shaded with cool hues. The warmest regions of the image are streaks of light on the trunk of the tree and grass conveyed in orange. The foliage is conveyed using blocks of solid color.
