Musashino presents a landscape with golden clouds kissing a mountain while below wild green lines sprout up representing an organic growth of grass. Use of negative space gives the feel of a large open field untouched by man. Light blue flowers accent the gold and greens suggesting a analogous color scheme. The abundance of gold on the top and green on the bottom bring a unity to the work that focuses the eye directly onto the mountain peak.
