Description

Mounted on board, unframed.

In the foreground a pile of logs stands near a path that runs from the lower right corner to middle left. Next to the path, lower right, a man in a green jacket, tan pants and hat and boots stands with his back to the viewer holding a shovel and bucket. He faces steps leading to barracks which dominates the right. On the left, a woman in blue and black walks toward him on the path. In the background to the left of the painting, a woman in dark blue with a white apron hangs laundry on an outdoor clothesline. Two more barracks appear in the background.
