Description
Literature

A figure with a skeletal face and a red dress stands in the doorway of a green house with a small cat at its feet. Another white figure leans, gazing out a window underneath a yellow curtain blowing in the wind. Small children and a dog play outside the house and a tree grows from the foreground to spread its canopy over the composition.
