An African-American woman stands with her back to a stone well with her left hand extended above her head as she thows something toward the well. A tree trunk overhangs the well and on the left side of the print there's a cascading flow of flowers that extends across the bottom. Above, in a cloud-like vignette pink hearts are floating.
