Set against an atmospheric rainy day, the artist captures a scene from childhood. A young girl is situated amidst a vast landscape, while a pair of lambs are standing beside her. The girl is dressed in a cute wonder woman ensemble, holding a floral patterned umbrella. A herd of cows can be seen nearby, amidst an impressive rural terrain.
