The interior of a cabin with a simple square table, bench and three stools. The entire scene is painted in solid brown without detail, with the perspective executed in a complex linear style typical of the artist. On the table, in high contrast to the rest of the canvas, there is a pure white tablecloth. The tablecloth, painted in acrylic so as not to yellow over time, creates a reflection of light which is real, rather than representing the effect of light.
