The view J.E.H. MacDonald has depicted in this verdant work looks out over a vast river valley, where fields run down to the water's edge and the sky is filled with floating clouds. His palette is bright and pleasing - in particular the blue, a colour he later came to embrace fully while painting high alpine lakes in the Rockies. Here, the brightness of the work conveys a feeling of lush, well-watered growth. All that we see has been fed by the waters of the river, which occupy the majority of space in the middle ground of the composition. The clouds enhance this feeling of moisture as they move languidly across the sky. Our vantage point up on the hill above the farmland adds an extra note of pleasure to the work. As we look out onto the productive, tranquil and bucolic scene, we feel the vastness of the landscape, the wideness of the river, and the endless distance of the sky.
