This painting of the Heath Pasture Beech Tree for a number of years was stored in the Southwick Studio frame room and labeled as "unfinished" and it was not named. When Mark Purinton married and moved to Boston to enter Tufts Medical School, RSW brought this painting to Boston and gave it to the newlyweds to hang in their apartment on Newbury Street. Mark carried RSW to the fourth floor apartment to see that it was hung properly. At this time, he signed the painting, "Robert S. Woodward." This was not his usual signature. the painting stayed with the newlyweds throughout medical school days, internship and residency days and when they entered practice in Buckland it hung in a prominent place in their home at the Southwick. It remains in the family.
