Description: Two brown tepees stand on the clear left bank of a stream; the smoke from a campfire rises in front of the first. An Indian woman with a white scarf around her head walks across the clearing toward the tepee with a child at her left. The stream flows from a lake in the center toward the front right corner. A grove of trees on the far bank of the river stands in front of series of three grey mountain ranges each rising to the right; in the center distance a snow-capped mountain completes the horizon below a cloudy sky. The entire picture is without much detail, in broad strokes; the colors are mostly browns and greys with a hint of green here and there. (From a color photograph.)
Note: The painting seems to be closely related to [Indian encampment below Mount Hood 1].
Identification: Assigned, descriptive title.
