A wide gladd vase rests upon a table partly covered by a cloth in a blue pattern.  The vase contains a tall floral arrangement.  Some flowed include pink, white, red and yellow roses, hydrageas, and lillies, among other flowers and greens.  Floating around the flowers are three blue and white butterflies.  The background behind the flower arrangement transitions from an almost black background from the left to a distant landscape scene, either through a window view or a painting.

Wooden table with a dodecagon table top and rounded out legs.<br />
<br />
This dog-legged tray-table has its name derived from the shape of its curved legs which resemble those of dogs. The table top and its raised brim are made from the same single piece of thick board. Aprons between the legs, immediately under the table top, are not shaped in identical proportion, as they were initially made long and were shortened where it was needed. Bamboo pegs are driven into the table top to join it with the aprons, and the stretchers are nailed to the legs by nails driven in from the bottom.

A scholar sits in a relaxed posture at his desk looking at cut plum blossoms in a white vase; before him is an empty sheet of paper and ink stone, and by his side an attendant is boiling water for tea. A crane tucks her head and leg to keep herself warm in the cold winter air. The scholar seems to be contemplating a subject to be drawn or written, perhaps related to the flowers.
