This image describes specific grassland within a preserve with a prominent tree on center right. The sky is depicted as taking up two/thirds of the image with many clouds. On the horizon we see a line of trees of both deciduous and coniferous trees. There is some green grass in the foreground but the rest of the nature preserve is yellow and brown. It looks like it could be autumn/fall or early spring. This piece looks like a watercolor painting.
