According to the auction listing for this item on Heritage Auctions' website:

"Hey!" Little Mei chases Chibi-Totoro and Chū Totoro through the bushy overgrowth of their forest home in this wonderful hand-painted original production cel from the Hayao Miyazaki-directed animated masterwork My Neighbor Totoro. Seen at the 31:00 mark of the film, this piece is presented on a stunning and abstracted production background rendered gorgeously in gouache, possibly from the film. This delightful piece measures an overall 14" x 10", and the cel is numbered B24 in the upper right corner. The background is numbered 80 in the lower right, and the setup as a whole shows minor handling and edge wear from normal production use. This piece can be seen on page 97 of the German Film Institute's gallery exhibition book Ga-Netchū! The Manga Anime Syndrome. The condition is Very Good.
From the Glad Museum Collection.
