View from interior of Abiquiu patio with upper 2/3 of painting devoted to a vast blue sky dotted with a pattern of white clouds. The adobe wall in the lower center has one small turquoise window, and a strong angular shadow crosses the patio from left to right, creating one dark and one light triangle within the rectangle of the building's space.
