This small-scale artwork depicts a working farmstead, in New Zealand. It is a textural work with lots of movement and life. Under blue skies luscious vegetation grows throughout this scene between the farm buildings.

There are signs of life everywhere in this scene – the fence at the rear has seemingly just been constructed as spare planks of wood rest just next to it. The farm carts have just been emptied and placed to the side, in the shadows, at the end of the day. In the foreground chickens peck at the remainder of some corn that had been thrown down earlier.
