The composition contains a farm scene filled with a variety of farm animals; cows, horses, pigs, horses, a man painting, two people fishing in a boat on the river, a barn, home, and windmill. In the left foreground is a corral with a steer leaning over the fence towards a cow; they are almost nose to nose. To the right are more farm animals, cows, pigs, horses mostly grouped in pairs. A shed like building in the middle foreground provides shelter for the some of the animals. To the far right is a figure with paint brush in one hand and palette in the other facing a canvas on an easel. He is facing the farm yard scene. Behind the painter is a body of water with two figures, in a boat, fishing. In the middle ground, on the right, is a clump of trees that thin out a bit as you move toward left center and eventual to the left side of the composition where a number of farm buildings and house can be seen. A windmill stands in front of the farm house with trees surrounded the sides of the house. Overhead in the background nearly cloudless sky fills the upper two-thirds of the composition.
