A photo of an abstract painting with houses, trees, and mountains. Black lines delineate the trunks and branches of the trees. Green and yellow are used to shade in the leaves, not individually but just the general shape of all the leaves as one. The neighborhood is marked by a number of pinkish and whitish houses. Observers cannot tell where one house ends and the next one begins. This creates an image of more houses than there perhaps really are. A tan, broad road runs in front of the homes. Towards the top of the painting, the houses fade out and the colors become more neutral-- swatches of creams, pale yellows, and a brownish pink.
