This charming original oil on panel work depicts a young lady waking on a pathway through wooded countryside. She is wearing a long brown cape over a ruby red blouse and pale green skirt. She holds up her skirt to keep it clean, revealing simple brown shoes over white stockings and her pretty white petticoats. She has dark brown hair, pinned up in the style of the day, beneath a trimmed bonnet. She has a pleasant expression on her face, and we sense that she is walking with purpose, perhaps to meet someone. The trees in the background are turning shades of rich auburn and there are leaves on the ground indicating that it is autumn. The overall palette is rich, warm and joyous.
