"The painting features a young woman wearing a pink scarf with outstretched arms looking out at a green pasture. Doves fly overhead, symbolizing peace. On a table sits a vase of pink roses and a journal with a dangling key. A butterfly, which hovers above the journal, symbolizes transformation" as described by Rios.
