Description: Looking down over a rise at a dramatically lighted lake or river, which is a deep blue/black on the left, bright on right. Beyond the lake is a hazy beige mountain against a grey, cloud-filled sky with a brownish slope on the left in front of the mountain. On a slope up to the right are three brown cows on a trail leading from a grove of trees. Four or five more cows are on a point on the far bank of the lake. Two trees penetrate the sky line near the right. The foreground is covered with brush and wildflowers. (From a color photograph.)
Identification: Descriptive title of unknown origin, as found in the Early California and Western Art Research index. Both the ECWAR slide and the photograph by William K. Dick identify the Wortsman Rowe offering.
