Description: Rain falls softly over this peaceful river scene; a woman stands at river edge, looking at the houseboat, her umbrella a bright blue - with another bright light of the sails on the river creating focus and accent. The view is generous and wide, encompassing the far shore and the calm landscape and farmhouse in the distance.
