Four cactuses and three images of a woman in cowgirl garb appear on a white background with blue sky.
In the vertical image, the top fifth is blue, with the tops of four green cactuses extending up to the edge of the image. The cactuses grow from a white, wavy foreground like sand dunes. The whiteness extends to the bottom of the image. Next to one of the cactuses is a photo of the smiling cowgirl woman, standing with her hand on her hip. She wears a cowboy hat, red and white gingham top unbuttoned to her navel, yellow shorts, and brown cowboy boots while holding a small pistol in her other hand. The same photo is copied and manipulated twice beneath the original photo, with each copy slanting in opposite directions in a zig-zag pattern. In the bottom right corner, the back side of a postcard appears, as if pasted to the image.
