A painting of a rural, rather secluded homestead.  The property is surrounded by woods.  There is a woman who is pulling water from a well and child awaiting the arrival of her grandparents.  The elder couple has just arrived onto the property of their family, still standing at the threshold of the forest path and the grounds of the home, and are greeted by a small dog.  To the right is a simple barn with a thatched roof where a horse and presumably other animals are kept.  The yard is full of activity - a group of chicken and a rooster pick at food from the ground while nearby a chicken looks after a group of chicks.  To the right of the scene, between the edge of the house and the well are a few duks looking around.
