Description:William is seated on the left in an armchair wearing a blazer, slacks, white shirt, and blue and khaki striped tie. His right arm is resting on the chair arm and his left is lightly clenched on his left thigh. He has short blonde hair parted on his right, and, although his body is turned near full right profile, his head is turned to look directly at the viewer.

James and Juliet, both also blonde, are seated on a yellow-upholstered couch and also looking directly at the viewer. James is wearing a blue one-piece with white collar and cuffs on the short sleeves. His right leg is crossed under his left on the cushion and the left does not reach the floor. He has a toy airplane in his left hand. Juliet is wearing a green dress with white around the neck and short-sleeved cuffs, and her right hand is on the couch and her left in her lap. Her ankles are crossed, and there is a red cushion behind her left side. An open book is on the floor at William's feet.
