Oil paint on canvas. The painting is a landscape depicting a pioneer encampment. The panoramic painting depicts a large meadow on the edge of a forest. There are seven very small figures in the foreground. The figures are dressed in red, white and/or brown. The figure in the center with the red shirt wears a white hat, the others wearing brown/back hats. In the distance near the edge of the forest there is tent and covered wagon with several more figures and a few horses. The prairie is a very bright green, the forest made of darker greens and browns. The sky is blue and cloudy. The frame is simple, made of wood and varnished.
