This painting depicts two buildings to the left and a tree on the right separated by a trail or road. As the trail curves away from view, there is a big dropoff. The two buildings overlook the dropoff toward a background comprised of blue soft looking mountains that have small brushstrokes to give the effect of trees. The people in the closer building appear to be looking out into the scenery. The buildings are painted in variations of brown pigment while the trees and grass are colored in light and dark greens. To the bottom left is the artist&#39;s signature.&nbsp;
