Ellen stands holding a basket among the trees and grass of the woods as Mr. Van Brunt leans against his ax in the background with several chopped pieces of wood sitting near his feet. His two oxen stand near him as he gazes at Ellen, who looks around her, seemingly in awe of the natural beauty of the woods as she rests her hand on her chest.
